Summertime Citrus, Mozzarella and Prosciutto

Summertime Citrus, Mozzarella and Prosciutto

We all know how trendy the charcuterie board has been the past couple years, and we are still here for it. The charcuterie board can favor whatever holiday, theme, or party it will attend. So, with it being summer, I created this refreshing, juicy, and savory board that you can snack on all day. This simple board is packed with vibrant colors and tangy flavors of grapefruits, oranges, and blood oranges. Add some crisp white wine, and you have a summer happy hour with friends that will put a smile on anyone’s face.

How to make a charcuterie board:

Any type of board can be intimidating. What I have learned is to go with the flow. There is no right or wrong way to assemble one. There are couple things that I do like to do that helps create texture and flow through a board.

Slicing: Create dimensional flow through the board with slicing your items in different ways. Even leave some ingredients whole.

Layer: I like to layer each item, meaning lay some citrus down on the bottom and then add another item like prosciutto on top followed by a couple of blood orange wedges mixed in. It’s all about the textures and layers to achieve that complex look.

Garnish: This is the step that I will always do. Style up your board with finishing touches like themed props, flowers, fresh herbs, spices, nuts, etc.
