With your favorite summer holiday just around the corner, a 4th of July Charcuterie Board is perfect to bring to a holiday potluck, barbecue, or picnic.

This 4th of July themed charcuterie board offers a festive blend of sweet and salty. My board is small to medium-sized, so feel free to adjust the portions to serve your guests accordingly.

Everything you need for your 4th of July Charcuterie Board

Charcuterie boards are great because they look like you’ve spent a lot of time on something when you’ve really just thrown it together. They are impossible to mess up!

Don’t have a charcuterie board? No worries. You can purchase the one in these photos here for around $20. If you don’t want to buy one, any flat platter will work.

If you are planning a picnic for your 4th of July celebrations, picnic sets are so fun and convenient. Here are similar baskets to mine in the photos below.

1. Crackers

Any type of crackers will do! Wheat thins, Ritz, or an assortment.

2. Cream Cheese Shortcakes

These are my favorite part of the board! You will need dessert shells, 6oz of softened cream cheese, 1/3 cup of salted butter, 2 cups of powdered sugar, 1/2 tablespoon of vanilla extract.

Mix everything but the shells together in a large bowl. Fill the shells with a generous spoon full of frosting. Top with blueberries and raspberries.

The frosting is roughly enough for 15 shortcakes. Cut the recipe in half for less or double it for more.

Alternatively, if you are not a fan of a cream cheese mixture, I think whip cream would be tasty too!

These printable American flags are perfect to decorate the shortcakes. Or you can purchase some already made.

3. Cheese, nuts, & meat.

Pick whatever meat and cheese you’d like.

A little bowl of mixed nuts is a great salty snack to add to the board as well.

5. Fruit

You can put any kind of red and blue colored fruit on your 4th of July board. I chose strawberries and blueberries. Watermelon, raspberries, cherries, or grapes would work well too.

6. Wine or Sparkling Cider

Individual bottles of wine or sparkling cider are great to pair with your charcuterie board. I am obsessed with these mini bottles of prosecco, plus they are easy to dress up with some festive ribbon.
