With all the springtime gatherings coming up — Mother's Day, graduations, bridal showers — knowing how to make a killer cheese board will go a long way. No matter the crowd, a cheese board provides a little something for everyone. But having all that variety can mean one thing: making a big dent in your wallet.
That's where Aldi comes in. With the cult store's unbeatable prices, you can put together a beautiful, impressive cheese board without breaking the bank.
This cheese board tutorial comes from blogger Jess at Plays Well with Butter. And she bought everything she needed to assemble it at Aldi!
Jess went with a mix of cheeses (double creme Brie, white cheddar, smoked Gouda, and blue cheese), cured meats (salami and prosciutto), crackers (a six-cracker assortment, pita chips, and Parmesan cheese bites), and nuts (roasted salted almonds, honey-roasted cashews, and a trail mix that contained dried fruit and pistachios).
She also gave a great tip about adding one semi-homemade element to the board. In this case she mixed softened goat cheese, honey, and a fig spread (all found at Aldi) to create a creamy, sweet dip or spread for veggies or crackers.
To add freshness and color, Jess filled out the board with blueberries, baby rainbow carrots, sugar snap peas, radishes, mini sweet peppers, and mini cucumbers.
The best part about making a cheese board is that you can use this example as a map and follow it exactly, or you can think of it more as a guide to help inspire you to build something that fits your tastes and needs. Either way you can't go wrong!
