Summer Spreads

 

Food boards can be so much fun. They are super easy to put together and you can get creative. I put together a sweet and savory platter for Father’s Day and I was so happy with the way it turned out. I am a huge fan of salty and sweet. When people ask, do you prefer salty or sweet, I literally can’t even. Clearly the only answer is both. But back to this spread. What I love about this concept is that you can make it a light lunch or a heart snack. Entertaining? Just put one of these out and everyone will be so pleased. I will admit my favorite item on this board is the grilled naan. I’ve expressed my love for grilled bread in the past, so it should come as no surprise. So simple, yet amazing with cheese or salami or beer dip or alone. Also, I love that you can theme it out. Do a Mexican, Mediterranean, Italian inspired board. Have fun and pick your favorites!

For this spread, I included

Grilled naan (literally drizzle in olive oil and generously sprinkle with salt. Grill until you see grill marks and it’s just slightly toasty.)
Green Olives
Pub style beer cheese dip
Pretzels
Crackers
Hard Salami (locally made!)
Honey sriracha Gouda
Port Wine Cheese
Cheddar Cheese
Bar mix
Mixed Berries
Lemon Cookies
Milk Chocolate

 

We also did a dessert favorite inspired board. The goal was to get the fire pit started and cook these over the fire, but then the wind happened and there was just no doing this. The gas stove made a fine alternative, so we roasted them over the stove top. Still delicious and such a fun spread. A mini cupcake/cookie/candy spread would also make a tasty dessert inspired spread.

For this spread, I included

Chocolate
Peanut Butter Cups
Chocolate caramel candy
Lemon cookies
Biscoff cookies
Graham crackers
Marshmallows
