Holiday Cheese Board

The Holidays are here & with that comes lots of little get-togethers & parties. I'm the type who loves to entertain so I enjoy putting together little spreads of snacks for gatherings. This cheese board is one I'd put together for any of my get-togethers this season with family or friends. I've made this exact one before & it was a hit- I had to refill a few of the items before drinks were even finished! If you have picky eaters or allergies it's easy to tweak these boards to fit everyone's needs. 

I will generally make sure everyone has their drinks prior to setting the board out. I always have wine, a few different local beers, and of course liquor for mixed drinks. For non-alcoholic beverages, I have on hand seltzer, a fruit juice, and a few sodas in the small cans. 

What to include // 
- Hard cheese (manchego, parmesan, aged cheddar) 
- Soft cheese (brie, cheese spread, gorgonzola) 
- Nut or seed (almonds, cashews, sunflower seeds)
- Cracker or chip ( pick a higher end cracker- no ritz!) 
- Meat (salami, prosciutto, sausage) 
-Olives (kalamata, black, castelvetrano) 
-Dip (salsa, chipotle dip, bacon horseradish) 
-Garnish-( fresh fruits like blackberries or herbs like rosemary) 

I'd love to know what you put out for appetizers!
