How To Make A Cheese Board

Learn how to make a cheese board that will wow your guests in just a few minutes!


  • 3-4 cheeses
  • 2-3 meats
  • 2-3 crackers/breads
  • selection of fresh or dried fruit nuts, or other snacks from the pantry
  • possibly a fun dip or spread
  • possibly fresh berries fruit, veggies, olives, or pickles
  • bonus: fresh herbs for garnish!


  • Gather all your food items first. Set them out on the counter so you can quickly size up what you have.
  • Start with one item. Pick something pretty and colorful, and put it down somewhere in the middle of a nice-sized board.
  • Pick something that goes with the first item (a veggie for a dip, crackers for a cheese). Put it down next to the first. Bonus points if it’s a pretty contrasting color!
  • Work your way out, following these principles, until your board is full. Serve!
