Your (Simple) Guide to an Easy and Colorful Spring Cheese Board

First thing’s first: You must add color. No exceptions. Be sure to set aside foods like strawberries, blueberries, green grapes— you get the idea.

As to how to go about actually creating the board, here’s the rundown. Begin by piling up the savory goods. This includes everything from your favorite cheeses, meats, and pâtés. Add any spreads— like jams and honey— around the board. Afterward, you can add the berries and nuts to fill in all the empty spaces. Best of all, these little guys will also give a beautiful pop of color to the presentation.

At the very end, surround the board with fresh crackers and baguette slices. And just like that, you’ve got yourself a successful Spring cheese board!
