Healthy and refreshing fruits and dips are the perfect thing to compliment enjoying the waters and sand. Enjoy these fruits and dip recommendations from Machika while you're at it! You can pack a charcuterie spread by keeping your ingredients in small serving bowls in a cooler with ice. Once at the beach, bring our your Machika Cheeseboard and plate your ingredients for the perfect beach day charcuterie spread.
Beach Day Charcuterie Board Fruits
There are plenty of fruits that are perfect or handling the heat at the beach. Fruit like watermelon are not only delicious, pair well with sweet dips, and easy to the store but also hydrating! With all those advantages, there's no reason why you shouldn't bring watermelon for your charcuterie spread. Another fruit that goes perfectly on charcuterie boards and with dips are apples.
