Adding Green Garnishes

Now, let’s add some greenery to our cheese board to celebrate the luck of the Irish!

  • Pickles: Tangy and crisp, pickles add a refreshing bite to the palate.
  • Kiwis: Sweet and tangy kiwis not only bring a pop of green color but also provide a refreshing contrast to the rich cheeses.
  • Green Grapes: Juicy green grapes add a burst of freshness and sweetness to balance out the savory cheeses.
  • Bell Peppers: Slice up some green bell peppers for a crunchy and vibrant addition to your cheese board.
  • Olives: Whether you prefer them stuffed or marinated, olives contribute a briny flavor and elegant appearance to the spread.
  • Cucumbers: Light and refreshing, cucumbers make for a crisp and hydrating accompaniment to the cheeses.
  • Broccoli: Steam or blanch some broccoli florets for a healthy and earthy element on your cheese board.

Arranging a St. Patrick’s Day Cheese Board

Arrange your cheeses and green garnishes on a large wooden board or platter, allowing plenty of space for guests to sample and mingle. Mix and match different textures and flavors to create a visually appealing and balanced spread. Don’t forget to add some crackers, breadsticks, and nuts for extra crunch and variety. For a final flourish, scatter some fresh herbs like parsley or basil over the board to enhance the presentation and aroma.
