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!

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 was needing an apple or something to take to a party. Seeing this appetizer board was perfect; different but not too similar or too out there. It was a hit! Everyone loved it and I will definitely do it again. Thanks!

  2. These are my favorite apps when ever I'm at a party. It is usually the safe go to! LOL , Thank you for the picture of how pretty I can throw this all together it really looks spectacular if you know how to place it all on the platter just right. - I'm printing this....:)

  3. Baby, what should we expect to spend on something like this? Also, would a meijer store have all of these variations or do you have a better suggestion?

    1. Not sure what a meijer store is - and cheese boards can range in costs. If you do most of the shopping at Trader Joes or something similar it can be $50-$75 bucks. If you go Whole Foods it probably will be double that or more depending on the types of cheese you select

  4. 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.
