As the summer begins to wind down, now is the time to get outside and make the most of these warm days while they last. One of my favorite ways to enjoy a summer day is a picnic in the park. With things being so different now, I like easy! I threw together this easy charcuterie board for the perfect summer picnic in the park or your own backyard.
This charcuterie board would also be perfect for a date night or virtual Girls’ Night In. While it’s been hard to spend time with my friends in real life, our virtual Girls’ Night In that we have at least once a week has been such a great way to stay connected and catch up.
Truthfully, even date nights have been severely limited, and this charcuterie board is perfect for a date night right in your own backyard.
After the kids go to bed, grab a picnic blanket, basket, and your favorite ingredients that will let you whip up an amazingly delicious charcuterie board within minutes.
Whether I’m virtually connecting with my girlfriends or unwinding after a crazy week with my husband, I can enjoy a delicious glass of wine and some yummy snacks all while eating sensibly.
We’ve been planning this girls’ night in since last month so when I headed out to do some grocery shopping at Stop and Shop, I made sure to pick up a bunch of my favorites from WW.
Since I always make sure my fridge is stocked with WW Light Mozzarella String Cheese, I built this charcuterie board around those. I added a few of my favorite meats like nitrate-free pepperoni and chorizo, some nuts and of course some fruit.
The great thing about charcuterie boards is the ability to customize them to your liking. There’s no right or wrong way to make them. Just get creative with your favorites.
I’m a cheese girl and I love cheese. With only 50 calories and 6g of protein per serving, WW Light Mozzarella String Cheese is my go-to for everything from snacks to this pretty snack board.
If you’re in need of some inspiration for your own charcuterie board, we even made these simple Grilled Chicken Skewers with the WW Light Mozzarella String Cheese.
Just cut the chicken into chunks, slice the cheese and layer them on a skewer with some tomatoes. Drizzle with some balsamic glaze or just enjoy as is!
Another reason I love WW Light Mozzarella String Cheese is because it’s a good source of calcium and has 50% less fat and 25% fewer calories than low-moisture part-skim mozzarella cheese. You can find it right in the dairy section at your local Stop & Shop.
Since no girls’ night in is complete without some wine, you also need to try my favorite rosé, Cense Rosé.
This pale pink rosé only has a 3 SmartPoints® Value per 5 fl. oz. serving. Now that is something to cheer about. It’s made in California and has pale pink floral aromas followed by flavors of strawberry and Bing cherry. I love how crisp it is!
And because every good celebration (in person or virtual), needs a yummy dessert, WW also has you covered there! These WW Giant Chocolate Fudge Ice Cream Bars have no artificial flavors, colors or sweeteners – just a delicious fudge taste. They’re just 90 calories per bar (and only 4 SmartPoints® Value per bar).
Summer may be winding down but that doesn’t mean we still can’t have FUN with our friends. Have you ever had a virtual girls’ night in with your friends? Pick up some of these WW snacks at your local Stop & Shop and customize your own charcuterie board for a fun night with your friends. Click here to find WW products near you!
