Christmas Tree Fruit and Cheese Board
Today I am partnering with one of our sponsors Cabot Cheese! Who doesn’t love cheese?! I am a huge fan of the Vermont Seriously Sharp White Cheddar. My kids are more into the Colby Jack though. So I decided to use both of these to make our holiday fruit and cheese board.
I love grocery shopping at ALDI mainly for their great prices. Plus you never know what you might find there. Last week I actually found a great carving board that ended up being perfect for this recipe!
To create this Christmas Tree Fruit and Cheese board you only need three different ingredients.
- Fresh Rosemary
- Assortment of Fresh Fruit
- Cheese Cracker Cuts or Cheese Cubes
To create this recipe to look like a Christmas Tree I started with the Fresh Rosemary. I laid it out onto the board in the form of a Christmas Tree.
Once I had the rosemary placed, I added lines of cheese and fruit in between. For the fresh fruit I chose to use red and green grapes, raspberries and blackberries. Any variety of fruit would work for this.
Once I had all of the fruit and cheese arranged on the board, I decided to use some pretzel sticks for the base of the tree. You could also use more fruit or celery stalks for that part.
This Christmas Tree Fruit and Cheese Board comes together very quickly! Kids and adults will enjoy grazing on this at your next holiday gathering.
