Easy Summer Appetizer Board

Start your party the casual, crowd-friendly way, and let guests help themselves to a variety of bites. No Southern appetizer board is complete without spicy-sweet pickled okra. Our obsession: Wickles Wicked Okra. We also recommend Olli Salumeria salami, slow-cured in Virginia and found in gourmet grocery stores across the South, but you can choose any of your favorite cured meats.
