Keto Charcuterie Board
If you are looking for ideas and inspiration for keto snacks or low carb appetizers, then this Epic Keto Charcuterie Board is for you.
Charcuterie boards are not only visually stunning, but they are loaded up with delicious keto party foods. The beauty of a well-made charcuterie platter is that there are no rules. You don’t have to ruin your diet just because its the Super Bowl!
You can literally add any low carb snacks that you want. Making a keto charcuterie board is the perfect low carb snacking option for the big game on Super Bowl Sunday or for the next girls night you are hosting. Let the carbs come from the wine, not the food!
What is charcuterie?
A charcuterie board, pronounced (shar-kew-ter-ee) is essentially a snacking board made up of meats, cheeses, vegetables, fruits and crackers. While traditionally made up of mostly cured meats, charcuterie boards have come a long way and now feature anything you can imagine – hot chocolate charcuterie, breakfast charcuterie board, dessert boards and more.
For this post, we will focus on low carb foods to make up a Keto Charcuterie Board using new items available at Safeway in the deli.
Rather than load your charcuterie board with crackers and bread, choose a low carb alternative like new Open Nature Parmesan Cheese Crisps. There are four varieties of cheese crisps available
- Cheddar Cheese Crips in the small round shape
- Parmesan Cheese Crisps in the small round shape
- Parmesan Cheese Crisps that are more like flatbread crackers
- Everything Parmesan Crisps that are like flatbread crackers
I also choose the new Primo Taglio uncured pepperoni, Waterfront Bistro Wild Alaskan Smoked Salmon and the Signature RESERVE olive tapenade to round out my low carb snacking board.
Best Low Carb Snacks
You can get really creative by loading up your board with low carb snacks. Nuts actually have the most carbs of the items listed below, but pecans and macadamia nuts are the lowest in total net carbs.
- red, orange, and yellow bell peppers
- pepperoncini peppers
- olive tapenade
- artichoke hearts
- Open Nature cheese crisps
- caramelized onion dip
- skinny spinach dip
Best Cheeses for a Charcuterie Board
It’s nice to have a variety of cheeses on your snacking board. I always go with three kinds of cheese – I like to have a sharp gouda, a salty Manchego and a savory aged cheddar. I’ll also mix it up and have a salty parmesan cheese or a spicy pepper jack, depending on what I’m pairing it with. You can choose any cheese you like as all cheeses are zero carbs, which is perfect for your Keto Charcuterie Board.
- Aged White Cheddar
- Herbed Chevre or Goat Cheese
- Blue Cheese
- Pepper Jack
Best Meats for a Charcuterie Board
- Smoked salmon
The Open Nature Cheese Crisps make an excellent cracker alternative for dips, spreads, smoked salmon, cured meats and anything you like to eat.
