A cheese board appetizer is definitely a go-to appetizer anytime I have people over. I love bringing out a platter of cheese and nibbles. Served alongside wine or a strong cocktail, it's a fine way to start a party. You can use any serving board as a cheese board, but these eight — ranging from slate to marble and walnut — are particularly fetching.
