Snack Board with foods from South Carolina

I’m assuming that you’ve read my Snack Board Basics post, but if you haven’t, and you want to know how to get started with the basics of snack and charcuterie boards, check that post out. 

Looking to add some Southern charm to your charcuterie and snack board? Look no further than the delicious and unique foods of South Carolina. Here are some of the must-have items for a decadent and Southern-inspired spread:

  1. Shrimp - Whether grilled, boiled, or fried, South Carolina is known for its delicious and fresh shrimp. Serve them with some cocktail sauce for a classic Southern appetizer.

  2. Boiled Peanuts - A Southern delicacy, boiled peanuts are a salty and savory snack that pairs perfectly with a cold beer. 

  3. Pimiento Cheese - This creamy and tangy spread is a Southern staple and can be served with crackers or sliced vegetables. Use Duke’s mayonnaise only or risk somebody’s grandmomma calling the law on you. 

  4. Deviled Eggs - A classic party food, deviled eggs are a Southern favorite. Add some diced ham or bacon for an extra indulgent touch.

  5. Benne Wafers - These crispy, sesame seed-studded cookies are a Charleston specialty and pair well with cheese and fruit.

  6. Cheese Pennies - These buttery and cheesy crackers are a Southern classic and a great addition to any charcuterie board.

  7. Peaches - South Carolina is known for its sweet and juicy peaches, which can be served fresh or grilled and topped with a dollop of whipped cream. SC peaches are better than Georgia peaches and that’s just a fact, don’t try and fight me. 

  8. Country Ham - This salt-cured ham is a Southern delicacy and pairs well with biscuits or as a topping for crostini. Your guests won’t expect this unassuming cut on a fancy board!

  9. Chow Chow - This tangy and spicy relish made with pickled vegetables is a Southern favorite and can be served alongside meats and cheeses.

  10. Summer Sausage - This cured sausage is a great addition to a charcuterie board and pairs well with crackers and cheese.

  11. Figs - These sweet and juicy fruits are a Southern favorite and can be served fresh or grilled and topped with goat cheese. My great-grandmother Florence had fig trees in her yard in Greer, SC until she died. 

  12. Rice Crackers - These crispy and gluten-free crackers are a great option for those with dietary restrictions and pair well with dips and spreads.

  13. Edamame - This Carolina cash crop can be served lightly salted or seasoned with soy sauce and chili flakes for a spicy kick.

  14. Crab Dip - Made with fresh crabmeat and creamy cheese, this dip is a great addition to any seafood-inspired charcuterie board.

  15. Petit Fours - These bite-sized French pastries can be decorated with fresh fruit or edible flowers and add an elegant touch to any dessert board.

Whether you're entertaining guests or having a cozy night in, a Southern-inspired charcuterie and snack board is sure to impress. So, gather these South Carolina-specific items and start snacking!
