Charcuterie Lunches for Busy Weekdays

Everyone loves charcuterie. A mouthwatering array of meats, cheeses, fruits, nuts, and pickles that lets you enjoy a little bit of everything you’re craving. Really, what’s not to love? 

We invite you to embrace what you love about charcuterie platters to add some delicious variety to school & work lunches for your family. They’re easy to make. Delicious to enjoy. And, of course, give you another way to enjoy the World’s Best Cheddar—and all your favorite sweet and savory accompaniments. 

While there are no rules for what to include in charcuterie lunches, we’ve assembled some flavor combinations to ease the hassle of weekday meal prep and add bold flavor to midday meals. 

Charcuterie Lunches for Kids

For kids’ lunches, it’s all about balancing delicious flavor with healthy food. The good news is that not only is award-winning Cabot cheddar the World’s Best, it’s also naturally rich in protein and calcium.

For the perfect school lunch, we like to pair:

  • fresh fruits
  • crunchy pretzels
  • hearty trail mix 
  • your favorite Cabot cheese, like our farmers’ Seriously Sharp Cheddar

If you want to add some extra love that will raise a smile, use cookie cutters and cut your cheese into seriously cute stars, hearts, or dinosaurs!

Charcuterie Lunches for Adults

When building your own charcuterie lunch, the flavor combinations are endless. Get creative and have fun. We like to build lunches that deliver not only luscious flavor, but texture contrasts that make for unforgettable bites.

Spoil yourself with a colorful lunch with the flavors of:

Your tastebuds will be so happy, you may catch yourself smiling through the rest of the workday.
