We love the creative fun and delicious flavors that come with putting together a festive appetizer board for the holidays. When choosing ingredients, choose your favorites — and make your board for vegetarians, vegans or omnivores — however you like.

  • • Plan for 2 oz of meat/cheese per guest, plus 4 oz of olives and pickles
  • • Go for a combination of rich tastes like cheeses and meats and bright/tangy flavors such as marinated vegetables, peppers and olives
  • • Put juicier items in decorative bowls — sprinkle with dried herbs or red pepper if you like
  • • Don’t forget seasonal fruit and vegetables, and garnish with fresh herbs
  • • Try skewering meat, cheese peppers or olives for a decorative touch
  • • Be careful not to crowd and consider using decorative toothpicks for guests to serve themselves with
  • • Small dishes with olive oil or honey allow guests to all even more flavor to their selections
  • • Serve with your favorite crackers or bread
