Step 1: Place large items like cheese wheels and wedges on the board
Step 2: Add dips and small fruits to small bowls and place the small bowls around the board wherever you see fit
Step 3: Add the cured meats, crackers, fruits and veggies (I love adding olives to this board!)
Step 4: Add all the yummy treats! Charcuterie board cookies and chocolate covered strawberries are perfect here
Step 5: Finish by adding in the green herbs to give it a live, effervescent look
Pro tip: Cheese is best served at room temperature so be sure to take it out of the fridge a few hours before serving.
Leftover cheese, meats and fruits or veggies can be stored in the refrigerator. It is usually best to just toss leftover crackers as they tend to be a bit covered in cheese.
