How to make a Cheese Platter aka charcuterieĀ board


  • Almonds
  • Dried apricots
  • Smoked gouda cheese
  • Herbed cheese
  • Salami
  • Prosciutto
  • Raspberry Pepper Jelly
  • Honey


  1. Choose a board. You can use slate, a white plain old boring white plate (that's what I did) or a cutting board.
  2. Say cheese! Mix it up with a variety of hard, soft and crumbled cheeses.
  3. Add salty and sweet. Pile on Italian meats, dried and fresh fruits and roasted nuts, honey, or even jam!
  4. Finish off your cheeseboard with savory crackers, pretzels, some kind of crispy flatbread.


Please note, I didn't use exact brand names for the products because you may or may not be able to find what I used at your store. Smart points can also vary depending on what and how much of each you use.
