Holiday Charcuterie Board

Tis the season for holiday gatherings! What better way to celebrate with your loved ones than with a charcuterie board before the holiday feast? Read on to discover our holiday charcuterie board must-haves.

Vienna Beef Hard and Soft Salami:

Because we can’t pick a favorite, we’re opting to include both Hard and Soft Salami in our holiday festivities. Add a protein-packed, Smoky, Garlic flavor to your board with our Salamis.

Cut the Salami into thin slices and arrange on your board. Shop here!

Vienna Beef Beef Stix

These snappy treats are a blend of lean meat, beef brisket trimmings, zesty spices, and our famous hardwood hickory smoking – all in a natural casing.

Place the Beef Stix on the board whole or cut into smaller pieces. Shop here.

Vienna Beef Cocktail Franks

Add tons of protein and flavor to your holiday gatherings with our Cocktail Franks.

After cooking, place in a small dish and arrange on your board. Shop at your local Chicagoland grocery store.

Brie Cheese

It wouldn’t be a charcuterie board without the Cheese! We love to pair Brie Cheese with our Salami for a flavor combination that will make your tastebuds happy. 

Drizzle a bit of Honey on top for the perfect combination of savory and sweet. 

Vienna Sport Peppers

Add a little bit of spice to your board with our favorite Peppers. Your guests will be surprised to see a Chicago Classic on your holiday board! 

Place a few drained Vienna Sport Peppers in a small dish and place on your board. Shop here.

Vienna Kosher Dill Pickle Chips

You can never have too many pickles, that’s why we’re adding our Kosher Dill Chips to our board — a delicious combination of crunchy and fresh.

Place in a dish or straight onto the board to add a crunch and tang to your selection. Shop at your local Chicagoland grocery store.

Vienna Düsseldorf Mustard

Next up on the board, we’re adding our Düsseldorf Mustard. With its strong flavor, it is the perfect match for our Hard Salami.

Add some Düsseldorf Mustard to a small dish and dip or spread to add tons of flavor to each bite. Shop here.

 

Other Necessities

When it comes to a great holiday charcuterie board, the more the merrier. Below are a few more of our favorite additions, pick a few to round out your board.

Pinot Noir

A nice Pinot Noir goes perfectly with Brie and Salami, making it a no-brainer addition to your holiday gathering.

Grapes

Every great charcuterie board needs a little sweetness — our favorite addition, Grapes. Place them on the vine on your board for an added touch of elegance. 

Crackers

Add crackers for some crunch, to eat alone with a bite of Brie and Salami. Add these straight to the board or in a dish on the side as the perfect vessel for every snack!
