Notes for Healthy Vegan Charcuterie Board Cups

Design a special paper cup or sticker to enhance the theme of your party
Consider making each cup different so guests can choose their favorite
Fruit Options: I always like to use the most popular fresh fruit especially since the cups are limited by space. Some options are berries, grapes, melon or apples. But be sure to add apples right before serving so that they do not get brown.
Vegetable Options: Vegetables always add in a nice healthy variety and balance from all the hearty meats, cheeses and nuts. I usually keep mine simple with some sliced cucumbers, baby carrots, grape tomatoes, olives or pickles.
Nuts Options: I have used many varieties of nuts. Anything goes here from spicy almonds, pistachios, a candied pecan or keep it simple with a basic nut mix. It’s perfect to line the bottom of the cup with the nut choice.
Carb Options: Every good charcuterie needs some carbs involved! You could keep it simple with some crackers, bagel chips, toasted bread, or small breadsticks. I use gluten free options so that it’s great for everybody and most people won’t know the difference.
