Charcuterie boards have become a staple around here and we love to use them for all kinds of events and holiday gatherings. In a pinch they’re also awesome for family dinner or date night too!

We love charcuterie boards because they are so easy to create and fit into our low carb lifestyle.  They combine all of our favorites; savory meat, delicious cheese, crunchy nuts and sweet berries.  And no board would be complete in our house without our yummy smoked salmon!
