If you know me then you know I’m a BIG fan of cheese boards. My best friends and I have made it a tradition to have them at girls night and we tend to always order them when we’re out to eat. In short, we’re OBSESSED.
This undeniable love got me thinking, “what would the ULTIMATE cheese board look like?” Lucky for you, you don’t have to wonder. I’ve pulled together the best ingredients you could want and I’ll show you how to assemble the ultimate cheese board for your next girls night, party, date, yourself, you name it!!
Below are all the ingredients you’ll need. You can obviously substitute or make your board larger, but here are my favorites.
The Cheese: I chose Merlot (hands down my favorite cheese), Fontina, and Asiago.
The Vehicle: I went for wheat crackers and crispy french bread bites.
Something Crunchy: An assortment of nuts. I picked walnuts, pistachios, almonds, and cashews.
Something Sweet: Honey, jam, and grapes. If you’ve never tried this, you’re about to be hooked!
Then I picked out a classic cutting board like this one from Target and started the staging process. It’s incredibly easy because all you’ve got to do is make everything look pretty and delicious! I put the assorted nuts and grapes in bowls to get them off the board. You can also put the honey and jam in dishes or just leave them directly on your cutting surface. Lay out your crackers and then add the cheese.
So there you have it: the ultimate cheese board! Now it’s your turn to try making this. I’d love to see pictures and hear how it goes. Keep me posted!
