Recipe Tips

Make it SimplePre-sliced and cubed cheeses and meats; 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 & VegetablesFor a more interesting board, serve 3 or 4 varieties of cheeses featuring a variety of textures, shapes and flavours. Soft, semi-soft and firm cheese in cubes, slices, logs and wedges add more interest. Shape the cheese ball into a football shape, then add some green onion strips for laces. Choose fruits that are in season and have complementary flavours and shapes, such as clusters of grapes, sliced crisp apples and pears, and soft berries. An assortment of vegetables adds both interest and crunch.

Cheese Board TipsFor best flavour, let the cheeses sit for about 15 min. at room temperature before serving. Meats can be rolled or just laid out flat. Salami is commonly available in mild, spicy or pepper-encrusted slices. 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.
