Recipe Tips


Arrange cheeses, cheese spreads and dips on large board or platter. Fill in spaces with fruit, vegetables, nuts and marmalade. Add crackers. Serve additional crackers in bowls or baskets next to the board.


Cheese and dip boards can be prepared for any number of servings, depending on the size of the gathering. Use a guideline of 1 oz. cheese, 2 Tbsp. dip and 1 oz. (or labeled serving size) of crackers* per person. For a well-balanced board, fill in empty spaces with fruit and veggies. For the 16 servings shown here, figure on purchasing 1 lb. of cheese and 2 cups of dip. Have plenty of RITZ Crackers, TRISCUIT Crackers and WHEAT THINS Snacks available for guests to choose from along with the fruit and veggies.  *Serving size of RITZ Crackers is 1/2 oz.
