DIY Holiday cheese platter

You know how it goes, on big holidays it seems like everyone is just waiting the whole day to stuff their bellies full of food! This year I was lucky enough to sit back and relax while a bunch of men did the cooking. I still felt like I should contribute in some way so I decided to make a cheese platter. 

It was a good thing too, because everyone was starving while we waited for the guy who cooked the bird to arrive. 

I was determined to make the biggest and best cheese platter imaginable so I made sure to get all of the essentials for a good snack tray, unfortunately I forgot to put the salami on the platter but it was still beautiful! 

Here’s what I used:

  • Brie cheese
  • Garlic and herb spreadable cheese -President brand
  • Pepper medley spreadable cheese – President brand
  • A French baguette 
  • Breton original crackers
  • Grapes
  • Strawberries 
  • Roasted/salted almonds 
  • Greek mix of olives and feta cheese 
  • Salami (not pictured) 

  
Get creative and add whatever types of fruit you like. I also thought it would be a good idea to make a dessert version with chocolate dipped strawberries and apples slices with caramel dip.. but I’ll have to save that for next time. 

It turned out to be a big hit and kept everyone satisfied while they were waiting for dinner.
