Recipe Tips
  • Make it Simple
    Pre-sliced cheeses, and prepared dips and spreads can be purchased from your supermarket. For a small gathering, check out the in-store salad bar where you can purchase small amounts of each item instead of buying an entire package of each. For added convenience, look for pre-cut vegetables in the produce section of your supermarket.
  • Vary the Cheeses, Fruit & Vegetables
    For a more interesting board, serve 3 or 4 kinds of cheeses featuring a variety of textures, shapes and flavors. Soft, semi-soft and firm cheese; cubes, slices, logs and wedges all add more interest. Choose fruits that are in season and have complementary flavors and shapes, such as clusters of grapes, sliced crisp apples and soft berries. An assortment of vegetables adds both interest and crunch.
  • Cheese Tips
    For best flavor, let the cheeses sit for about 15 min. at room temperature before serving. If serving a wedge or full piece of cheese, be sure to place a knife on the board for each variety of cheese you are serving.
