The Fruit, Veggies, and Cheese Pairing Board
Get ready for fresh flavor! This board is the ultimate summer picnic staple. We’ve combined four snackable, fan-favorite cheeses with some homemade ramp butter, bright berry jam, and a huge helping of fresh fruit and vegetables to create a mix of easy and refreshing bites that you can serve up for any occasion. Fire up the grill and char some Halloumi along with the burgers you’re cooking, and serve it alongside creamy D’Affinois, a bright herb goat log, and crunchy Gouda, plus a whole lot of mouthwatering watermelon.
preparation & ingredients
On a rectangular board, arrange two empty jars near the bottom right corner.
Around the jars, arrange slices of the Herb Goat Log, shingling them neatly. Make a pile of grilled Halloumi in the upper right corner of the board. Toward the top right corner, place a wedge of Fromager D’Affinois. On either side, make two small piles of Gouda slices, leaving some room between the cheeses.
Make a pile of Rosemary Marcona Almonds in the center of the board. Then create a shingled pile of Jan’s Farmhouse Crisps in the bottom right corner of the board.
Fill the two jars with Ramp Butter and Wild Blueberry Preserves.
Arrange flat piles of beet leaves around the top right and bottom left corners of the board.
Fill the empty space around the Halloumi with watermelon slices, and fill the empty space between the D’Affinois and the Gouda with blanched asparagus.
Create alternating shingled piles of cucumber and beets on top of the beet leaves. Then fill the empty space in the center of the board with cherry tomatoes.
