How To Create the Picture-Perfect Spring Cheeseboard

Who doesn’t love a good cheese board and some charcuterie? I know for a fact that when I see brie, prosciutto and artisan crackers or bread, I don’t hesitate for a second to devour the combination. You guys know that I’m on a healthy eating plan these days, but I wanted to make a delectable spread for Mackenzie’s birthday dinner that we hosted last weekend. I’ve always wanted to make one, and decided to go all out for this special occasion. I stocked up on some of our favorite cheeses and Italian meats, plus yummy spreads and snacks to bring it all together. Learn how to make your own picture-perfect Spring cheeseboard below!

Whether you’re serving your cheeseboard as an appetizer or the main event, you can’t really mess it up, and it’s always a hit with your guests. Here are a few things you need

The Cheeses

Now as a cheese lover, this is the part I get most excited about. When choosing your cheeses, it’s best to keep it to just three to four kinds, and choose your favorites. I decided to go with some of mine, which are manchego, sharp Vermont cheddar, brie, and some herbed goat cheese. Of course, don’t limit yourselves to my choices – anything goes!

The Meats

As for the meats, keep a good ratio with the cheeses, so three to four will do as well. I bought a variety selection of different types of salamis, and even opted for prosciutto wrapped cheese wands. Yum!

Fruits and Other Snacks

This is where you can get really creative with your color scheme. The accoutrements are where you can play with the overall look of the board. I think it’s so gorgeous to add some fresh and dried fruits, jams, savory spreads, olives, and nuts. Plus, each of these flavors goes perfectly with cheese!

The Crackers & Bread

I’m a huge fan of rustic artisan breads and crackers. It’s nice to have a variety, like wheat, garlic, sesame seed, or even simple water crackers. A fresh French baguette or loaf is always a great choice, and you can often find great options for crackers at your local deli.

Supplies
3-4 cheeses
3-4 meats
Miscellaneous foods (fruits, jams, nuts, etc.)
Various assortment of crackers
A board of your choice
Cheese knives
Serving platters
Bowls

The rule of thumb when you’re arranging your board is to start by laying down the cheeses first. They are the main attraction, after all! Next, add the meats, and then fill in the extra spaces with the accoutrements.
