The Ultimate Appetizer Board

You guys freaked out of the Mezze platter we did back for Easter (I mean it was the most liked instagram photo I ever posted EVER) – so I figured we should probs up the ante for Memorial Day no!? Get ready… it’s the Appetizer Board to end all boards!

I mean, can we just take a moment to look at this situation. It’s everything you’ve ever wanted piled onto a board that you can easily assemble and then transport outside for your memorial day party! My friends over at DeLallo hooked it up with all their delicious meats, cheeses, olives, snacks… the whole nine yards. There is absolutely zero cooking involved which is so incredible on days when you’re expecting a crowd. No shame in taking some help from the store or ordering a few things on their website!!

Making the perfect Appetizer Board is an art form – and you need a few things to get started! Meats – get a few varieties, some spicy, some herby, some sliced thick, some thin. Cheese – again, get a variety! Anything you’d want to nibble on. Olives – these add endless flavor to a cheese board and who doesn’t love a briny olive! Bread sticks – because you need carbs. Obviously. Nuts and dried fruits – because as much as I’d like to only eat meats and cheese all day, we can mix it up a little bit for good measure. And there you have it!

Notes

I like to group things in piles so it’s easy to identify everything. And that way when something is running low, I can take note, grab some refills from inside, and just start the pile again and let people graze.

  1. I would be so happy with a glass of wine, some good friends and THIS board in front of us for dinner. So. much. yum!

  2. I’m drooling, this looks so good. I would love to have my girls around this with some wine!

  3. That is not going to be inexpensive. I have found that an appetizer board of this sort will probably cost as much as a steak dinner for each diner. However, it is a lot more fun than steak.

  4. Yum! I love this idea, and the art of the presentation. I’m hosting a fall party this coming weekend and this will be the perfect touch to an appetizer. Thank you for sharing!

  5. WOW! This looks delicious! I feel that it has at least one thing for everyone! I have a group gathering coming up and will definitely be using this! Everyone is going to be so impressed with me, thanks to you!

  6. That board is a pizza peel. I can see the handle. You use it to slide the pizza off and into the oven.

    1. it’s actually just an old bread board – it’s too big to be a pizza peel. Wouldn’t fit into an oven

  7. Looks great . Will make for Easter bring along dish. Sure everyone in S. Boston will be delighted . Will add Chibta and a french stick.

    Won’t forget the EVOO, Just incase needed. Garlic also.
