How to Make the Perfect Holiday Cheese Board
of 6 different cheeses
get a mix of creamy (like Brie) aged (like Manchego) Blue, goat, and something unique, like the Ale laced Irish Cheddar I used.
thinly sliced salami
log of dry salami or summer sausage
tub of prepared hummus
baby carrots and snap peas for dipping
about a cup of dried apricots
use cranberries or cherries as well
marinated sun dried tomatoes
types of fresh fruit such as a ripe pear
apples, pomegranate, grapes, tangerines, figs, etc.
either raw or salted and roasted, I used almonds, hazelnuts, and cashews
Dijon or honey mustard
hot pepper jelly, honey, fig jam, or other condiment of your choice
types of crackers or sliced baguette
Arrange your cheeses first, providing a cheese knife or spreader with each. Lay down a small piece of parchment or waxed paper underneath the cheese if you like.
Add the sliced meats, rolling some of them if you like, along with the hummus and veggies.
Fill in the spaces with your dried and fresh fruit, olives, nuts, etc. Be sure to include a spoon or knife with each condiment like mustard that you use.
Set out your cheese an hour ahead of time to give it a chance to come to room temperature. Cover everything loosely with plastic so nothing dries out.
