Give your cheese board the update it needs for Spring entertaining by giving it a citrus twist. Swap your go-to garnishes for accents of lemon, oranges, and limes for that pop of color.
Styling your Board
Start with a large wooden board – this one is from ETU Home and is absolutely beautiful!! Place your cheeses and grape clusters first since they are the largest items and anchor the board. I usually like to have one large cheese wedge, another cheese that is cut into cubes, and another that is sliced!
Next surround your cheeses with a green garnish like thyme and tuck under and around the large cheeses to lay your “accessories” on top of. Next, work in crackers, salamis and prosciuttos. I am loving the brand Creminelli for my cheese board meats!! I try to lay my meats in a few different ways… sliced, rolled or fanned. Then I like a few small bowls (these are West Elm) in my corners, which are filled with cornichons, olives, or nuts.
Lastly, work in the citrus! From small mandarins to a large orange slice on top of your brie or manchego, you will instantly get that bright color and texture you need to make it feel “Springy”.
