How to assemble a modern Passover inspired charcuterie board
A love a good themed charcuterie board, so I thought I’d put together a Passover inspired appetizer plate to serve before a Seder meal. It’s also perfect for those in between meals, when a little nosh is needed.
While a charcuterie board might not be a traditional passover meal, a kosher charcuterie board is a fun modern take on this important Spring holiday. Scroll down for a complete list for what’s on the board.
How to Build a Passover Inspired Charcuterie Board
The most important component of this plate is the matzo. The matzo takes the place of bread and crackers. But wait, we are also serving it two ways.
See those chocolate crackers? That’s actually matzo chocolate bark —also rightfully referred to as matzo crack. I made the chocolate bark for the first time following this recipe and I have to say it lives up to the hype. You can also buy matzo bark or use chocolate bars instead for a little sweetness.
Next, I wanted to add smoked salmon and potato latkes. Not only because I would count those two things as my top 10 favorite, but because they both symbolize the holiday to me. I added sour cream in a separate ramiken for those who like to add. You could also use cream cheese, and add capers and olives or apple sauce.
Listen, this is your charcuterie board, I’m just sharing this for inspiration.
Why Add Deviled Eggs to the Charcuterie Board?
First, the answer is easy. Deviled eggs are delicious. But also very easy to make and in general hard boiled eggs are a great protein if we were making a lunch time charcuterie board or a breakfast board.
You can make deviled eggs one day ahead and they will keep covered in your refrigerated up to three days. I used this recipe to make these. If you don’t like deviled eggs you can skip them or just serve up hard boiled eggs.
Again. Your world.

Tips for How to Create a Charcuterie Board
In life I say less is more. When it comes to charcuterie boards it’s the opposite. More is more. Meaning a board looks the most beautiful when you filled in all of the open spaces and the cravises.
I love to do that with fresh fruit and herbs. Sprinkling fresh berries and maybe a bit too much dill creates an opulence on the board and it’s visually pleasing.
Another helpful tip is make shortcuts whenever possible. I used kosher pre-made latke batter and it made putting together this charcuterie board a breeze.
If you plan to assemble a Passover board and want to keep it kosher, make sure to pick up kosher versions of all of the ingredients, like mayonnaise before assembling your spread.
Also, if you are serving a kosher board, every step of the process from purchasing to preparing the food must be kept kosher.
