Tips and Tricks for the Perfect Vegan Charcuterie Board
Choosing A Board
Making a charcuterie doesn't mean you have to go out and buy a super expensive board. Just reach for any wooden cutting board or tray that is large enough to hold all you plan to serve.
Even a cookie sheet can be a base for your board in a pinch! Make sure to pick a tray that has enough room for all your snacks to fit, but doesn't leave a lot of empty space. The board needs to look full for the best presentation.
Prepare in Advance
You can prepare your board in advance if you prefer, which is great for entertaining. Just assemble your snack board as you would like, cover it tightly with plastic wrap, and store in the fridge until you are ready to serve.
I served my vegan charcuterie board with homemade hummus - the recipe is in the recipe card below!
Even if you do the same, consider placing several small bowls of hummus around the snack board, rather than one large bowl. The placement can help create balance!
However, serving a few different vegan dips will help balance out your board flavor-wise as well as visually. If you want to add more dips, here are a few of my favorite options:
- Vegan Blue Cheese Dressing, such as this one from Daiya
- Vegan Artichoke Dip (This 5-minute version is a great choice!)
- Vegan Jackfruit "Crab" Dip
- Baba Ghanouj (an eggplant and tahini dip)
- Sun Dried Tomato Dip
- Avocado Edamame Dip
- Olive Oil & Balsamic Vinegar - perfect for dipping bread.
More Snack Board Ingredients
You can change up this grazing board to fit your own tastes and what you have on hand. Some delicious choices for your vegan charcuterie board are:

- Artichoke Hearts
- Sun Dried Tomatoes
- Olives - all different varieties!
- Nuts - Cashews and Pecans are a great coice.
- Pita Chips
- Tortilla Chips
- Sliced Whole Grain Bread
- Berries - Strawberries, Raspberries, Blueberries
Include Something Sweet
I tend to lean towards savory ingredients when it comes to snacking. But it can be nice to include a little something sweet on your board as well.
Grapes and fresh berries are a great option, and they pair well with many of the savory ingredients too.
Or you could get really fancy and serve a chocolate hummus paired with strawberries and melon on one end of the tray. Yum!
How do you say "charcuterie board?"
Not quite sure how to say "charcuterie?" Here is how to pronounce it: "shahr-ku-tuh-ree." Now you know. 😉
How do you build a charcuterie board?
Start by placing dip on both ends of the board. Then begin to add vegetables, nuts, and such on the board. I began by laying items around the bowls, and then worked my way out to the edge of the board, filling in all the empty spaces.
Are a grazing board and a charcuterie the same thing?
Essentially, yes, the two names mean the same thing. Traditionally "charcuterie" includes meat, but today most people use the term "charcuterie board" to refer to any assortment of snacks laid out on a tray.
You will find that - no matter the name - an arrangement of your favorite tasty snacks on a board is a surefire crowd pleaser!
What are items to put on a vegan charcuterie tray?
Vegetables, veggie "meat," vegan cheese, dips, crackers, bread, etc. You might even enjoy adding in some nuts, fresh fruit, and more.
