Holiday Appetizer Board

Holiday Appetizer Board

I love having a beautiful and healthy appetizer board set out at the holidays. They are so fun to make and really can be a work of art! The list of items that you can include are endless.

 

Here are some ideas:

*Cheese – choose a few of your favorites (I share mine below)

*Smoked Wild Salmon

*Aged Salami

*Fruit -grapes, berries, apples, pears, apricots, anything that you like!

*Nuts -almonds, pistachios, walnuts, pecans, to name a few.

*Dried Fruit -cranberries, cherries, raisins, apricots.

*Crackers

*Hummus

*Veggies – carrots, cucumber, celery, peppers, snap peas, cherry tomatoes.

*Olives

*Anything else that you like!

 

We have two favorite cheeses at my house, both available at Trader Joe’s.

 

The first one is this Creamy Toscano Soaked in Syrah…it is so lovely, my kids can’t get enough of it!

 

 

Also, this Carmelized Onion Cheddar is out of this world!

 

 

We also love this Wild Smoked Sockeye Salmon, so delicious with some red onions and lemon.

 

 

There really are no rules on how you put your beautiful board together, so many possibilities with all your favorite things. Have fun putting all the gorgeous colors together and best of all, sharing it with friends and family.

 

Enjoy!
