Snack boards, whether they be cheese or charcuterie based, are never just cheese and/or charcuterie. For a truly balanced board, you need pickles, a jam or honey, and other salty, crunchy, and piquant bits and pieces to highlight and complement the main attraction. You also need a green onion.
When it comes to food-focused boards, cheese and/or charcuterie are usually the star. I love both of these things, but they don’t have to be the focal point of a snack board, especially when there are so many other types of snacks.
