Gluten Free Charcuterie: Trader Joe's Style

Pretty much every time Brad & I craft up a charctuerie board, it comes out a little different & we love that! It's like the board is our canvas & we just choose what we're feeling in the moment. It's even fun to pack it all up, head to the park or creek, & enjoy a little evening tapas with some vino under the Flatirons. Whatever we're doing, we usually go with Trader Joe's because we dig it, it's affordable, the employees rock, & they have puns on their labels. What's not to love?


Any who, I thought it'd be a fun little idea to throw together some charcuterie board examples - The Classic, The Shroom Board, The Vegan Med.
