If you are from Wisconsin, you’ve experienced a wide range of cheese boards. Some are extravagant, featuring multiple types of cheese, sausage, fresh fruit, nuts and crackers. They are delicious, but often take a lot of time to put together and cost a pretty penny.
While large cheese boards make sense for the holidays or other family gatherings, a simplified version is perfect for cozy evenings at home. I pulled together this selection for a quick appetizer when dinner was taking longer than expected. With a glass of wine, this simple appetizer can turn an ordinary evening into a romantic date night at home.
All you need to recreate this appetizer is a nice block of cheese, fresh or dried fruit, crackers, and nuts. I chose a sharp cheddar, apple slices, grapes, pistachios, pita chips, and whole wheat crackers. Still think that is too much trouble? You never can go wrong with a slice of cheese and grapes! I don’t think you can get much simpler than that!
