Festive Holiday Wreath Veggie and Cheese Board

This is not your average Cheese Board. After all, anyone can cut some cheese and put it on a board, and call it dinner. Not today. We’ve stepped back in the test kitchen again after nearly two years of stay-at-home holidays to share this delightful little feast with you. We’re all opening our homes again and having fun with food. It’s always best to first feast the eyes with an artful presentation, and this wreath is sure to please all the senses. Impress your guests with a new and creative appetizer.

How to make this Cheese Board

Step One: Shop

Take a trip to your local market and pick up a few of your favorite cheeses. We selected smoked gouda, mozzarella and sharp cheddar, but you can use your favorites.

Next, visit the produce department and grab a bunch of radishes, a few different bunches of herbs.

Now visit the gourmet specialty aisle and pick up some stuffed olives and marinated peppers.

Our rich and wonderful Spring Honey will complete this project nicely.
