Thanksgiving Charcuterie Board

I love making this 30 minute Thanksgiving charcuterie board as a beautiful and tasty snack before the big meal. It has flavors and colors of fall with pumpkin dip, harvest fruits and even themed sugar cookies!

  • variety of cheese
  • variety of cured meats
  • olives, pickles, caperberries and/or artichoke hearts
  • dips (pumpkin butter, artichoke dip and pistachio cream are my favorites)
  • crackers or chips
  • decorated sugar cookies
  • fresh fruits (pears, apples and pomegranate)


  • Get a board and place cups and spreaders where you would like them 
  • Add some dips or sauces in the little cups 
  • Also add things like pickles which are wet and can make a mess
  • Add cheeses around the board, I recommend at least three varieties
  • Add themed decorated sugar cookies like we did here with the white sweaters, orange pumpkins and leaves
  • Finish with cured meats, crackers, fruits and veggies (I love adding fresh pomegranate to this board!)



Pro Tip: If you want less clean up mess, add some wax paper to the board first
Pro Tip: The cups are especially great for berries, olives and anything with “juices” so they don’t get your other board ingredients soggy
It is best to put all items that need refrigeration such as cheeses, meats and dips into containers. They can then be refrigerated until you want to enjoy them again.
Crackers, fruits, cookies and non-refrigerated items can also be placed in containers and bags and store at room temperature.
This Thanksgiving charcuterie board can absolutely be made dairy-free. Just choose dairy-free cheeses and dips or leave them off entirely.
