The Ultimate Guide to Creating a Perfect Cheeseboard/Charcuterie Board: A Step-by-Step Recipe with 3 Cheeses, Dips, Deli Meat, Nuts, and Fruit

Here at Rookie With A Cookie, we’re all about serving up delicious, easy-to-follow recipes, and today I’m bringing you one of my recent favorites: the ultimate cheese board.

A beautifully arranged cheeseboard with Brie, Boursin, Colby Jack cheese, dips, deli meat, nuts, and fruit on a large platter.

With a mix of creamy Brie, herb-infused Boursin, and tangy Colby Jack cheese, this cheeseboard recipe is perfect for any occasion. Whether you’re serving it as a casual snack or as the centerpiece of your next dinner party, this cheeseboard recipe is sure to be a hit. With a mix of creamy, tangy, and savory flavors, it’s the perfect way to enjoy a delicious meal with friends and family.

To get started, you’ll need to gather a few key ingredients. First, the cheeses:

Brie is a classic soft cheese with a rich, creamy texture and a mild, slightly nutty flavor. Boursin is a French cheese with a similar texture to Brie, but with added herbs and spices for a more complex flavor profile.  Finally, Colby Jack cheese is a semi-hard cheese that’s perfect for adding a touch of tanginess to your cheeseboard.

Once you’ve got your cheeses, it’s time to add some dips. For this cheeseboard recipe, we’re using three of my favorites: hummus, jam and honey. Hummus is a classic Mediterranean dip that’s perfect for pairing with tangy cheeses, while sweet dips like jam and honey are perfect for spreading on crackers.

Next, you’ll need some deli meats to add some extra protein to your cheeseboard. Whatever deli meat floats your boat is perfect! I used some turkey meat and pepperoni; they’ll add a touch of savory flavor to your cheeseboard.

Finally, it’s time to add some nuts, fruits, olives to your cheeseboard. I call these delicious fillers for the board. I used almonds, walnuts, grapes, green olives, cherry tomatoes. I start by spatially arranging the cheeses followed by the three dips, then the deli meat and crackers. Lastly, I nestle the nuts, fruits and veggies in the spaces that are empty. A beautiful board should not have gaping holes! And there you have it – the ultimate cheese board!

So what are you waiting for? Grab your ingredients and get ready to make the ultimate cheeseboard! I love seeing all the amazing recipes you create!
