The options are endless for this Everyday Cheese Board, but the trick is to get a solid combination of flavors, textures, and colors on the board! I like cheddar, Colby jack, and swiss cheeses with jam, mustard, various types of crackers, olives, and fruit.


Ingredients

  • Cheeses – sharp cheddar, Colby jack, and swiss
  • Crackers – look for a wide variety of shapes and textures (some buttery, some seedy, etc.)
  • Fruit – thinly sliced apples are always a great idea, and so are berries
  • Extras – seasonal fruit, dried fruit, nuts, and olives
  • Condiments – a whole grain mustard, some kind of jam, and honey are all musts
  • Board – wood board, marble slab, cookie sheet, plate — it all works
  • Cheese knives

Instructions

  1. Arrange the cheeses first (the most important ingredient, after all), and then place the rest of the crackers, nuts, fruit, and other items around the cheese.
  2. Finish with a garnish (seasonal items, dried fruit, and even other organics, like leaves, herbs, or whole apples work great), and enjoy!

Notes

  • Don’t think you need anything fancy — it’s just the right combo of simple ingredients.
  • When eating a cheese board, making flavor combos on your cracker is half the fun. Add cheese, mustard, a slice of apple, and a drizzle of honey to your cracker. The combinations are endless but half of the fun of eating from a cheese board.
