Easy Patriotic Appetizer for the 4th of July
This cheese board is perfect for a BBQ where you don’t want this to be the main food option or make people too full. For the presentation of this board, I left the cheese mostly alone, except the stars which I cut into thin slices and then used a star-shaped cookie cutter, and bought the meats already sliced. I also added some crackers and pretzels for dip and a change in the consistency.
What You’ll Need:
- 3-4 different types of cheese
- Some sort of meat
- A variety of red/blue fruits
I threw this together with brie, cheddar cheese shaped like stars, blue cheese, grapes, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, hummus, and salami. I also added pretzels and crackers for dipping and to go along with the items. It’s very low maintenance.
