Recipe Tips

Make it SimpleThinly sliced meats, such as these shown in the photo, can often be purchased in an assortment package found in the deli or cheese departments of your supermarket. Check out the store's olive or salad bar for the marinated vegetables and olives. Try serving an assortment of olive varieties, such as those flavored with crushed red pepper or herbs.

Vary the Cheeses and MeatsFor a more interesting board, serve 3 or 4 varieties of cheeses with a variety of textures, shapes and flavors. Soft, semi-soft and firm cheese; cubes, slices, logs and wedges all add more interest. Meats can be rolled or just laid out flat, or rolled around mozzarella cheese sticks. Salami is commonly available in mild, spicy or pepper-encrusted slices.

Cheese TipsFor 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.
