Equipment

  • Serving Tray
  • Cheese Knives
  • Toothpicks

Ingredients

  • 4 ounces Widmer’s Cheese Cellar's White Cheddar Cheese
  • 4 ounces Carr Valley Sweet Vanilla Cardona Cheese
  • 4 ounces BelGioioso Ciliegine Mozzarella cherry-sized mozzarella pearls
  • 4 ounces Salemville Blue Cheese Wedge
  • 6 ounces Strawberries washed and sliced
  • 6 ounces Blueberries washed
  • 6 ounces Raspberries washed
  • 6 ounces Cherry Tomatoes washed
  • 4 ounces Genoa Salami sliced
  • 4 ounces sliced Calabrese Salami
  • ½ cup Kalamata Olives
  • 4 ounces strawberry rhubarb jam
  • 1 package butter crackers for serving
  • 1 package puff pastry straws for serving

Instructions

  • Begin by preparing the cheese: chunk the white cheddar into bite-sized pieces by pulling it apart with a cheese knife or the tines of a large fork. Slice the Vanilla Cardona cheese into small triangle by place the wedge on a cutting board and creating parallel cuts across the long side (so when looking down at the chees wedge the skinny part should be at the top and the rind should be on the bottom, facing you, slice downward to create small wedges). Leave the mozzarella and blue cheese untouched for now.
  • Lay down a serving tray or cutting board and cover with parchment paper, if desired. Place a small jar on the tray and fill it with the strawberry rhubarb jam. Arrange cheddar cheese, Sweet Vanilla Cardona, and blue cheese near three corners of the board. For the mozzarella, place a piece on a toothpick and then add a cherry tomato, as well, for a little cheese and tomato bite! Place these in a pile in the fourth and final corner of the board.
  • Scatter the berries into small piles alongside the cheeses and create a long row of the folded salami down the middle of the board. Add the olives (in a bowl, if desired), crackers, and any other items you wish to serve on your patriotic cheeseboard!
  • Serve with another tray of crackers and puff pastry straws on the side.

Notes

Board can be made up to 24-hours in advance. Create the board (minus the crackers/carbs) and wrap tightly in plastic and place in refrigerator. Remove from fridge and unwrap 30 minutes before serving. Once board has come to room temperature, add crackers/carbs.
If desired, swap fruits, filling, and accoutrements to suit personal tastes/preferences.
Serve patriotic cheese board with a lovely glass of chilled white wine or a robust red!
