- Meat and cheese boards can be prepared for any number of servings, depending on the size of the gathering. Use a guideline of 1 oz. cheese, 1/2 oz. meat and 1 oz. (or labeled serving size) of crackers* per person. For a well-balanced board, fill in empty spaces on board with vegetables. For the 2 servings shown here, figure on purchasing 2 oz. of cheese and 1 oz. of thinly sliced meat. *Serving size of RITZ Crackers is 1/2 oz.
- Antipasto Skewers
For a fun presentation, skewer some of the meat, cheese, veggies and basil leaves with a wooden toothpick. Carefully insert toothpick into center hole in each RITZ Cracker, twirling toothpick slightly as you insert the toothpick. Drizzle skewer lightly with dressing just before serving.
- Cheese Tips
Soft, semi-soft and firm cheese; cubes, slices, logs and wedges all add more interest. Meats can be rolled or just laid out flat. Salami is commonly available in mild, spicy or pepper-encrusted slices. Turkey can be oven roasted or smoked.
