In this manual you will learn how to add fruit slices and nuts to your snack board in a tasteful and colorful way. Start by selecting different types of fresh fruit and a variety of nuts. Cut the fruit into thin slices and arrange them artistically on the snack board. Fill in the empty spaces with a mix of nuts for a crunchy addition.

Choose the right fruits and nuts

Choose a variety of fresh fruit, such as strawberries, grapes or apple slices. Also select nuts such as almonds, walnuts or cashews. Get a good mix of both fruits and nuts for balanced flavor and nutrients. Enjoy this healthy and tasty snack combination!


Cut the fruit into slices and wedges

Wash the fruit thoroughly under running water to remove dirt and impurities. Dry the fruit carefully with a clean kitchen towel before you start cutting. For example, cut an apple into wedges by first cutting the apple into quarters and removing the cores, and then cutting the quarters into thin slices. Make sure the slices are not too large so that they can be easily picked up with a fork.


Lightly roast the nuts

Heat a dry frying pan over medium heat. Roast the nuts brieflywhile stirring regularly with a wooden spoon or spatula. Make sure that they do not burn by keeping a close eye on the nuts and regularly checking for the desired color and scent. Once the nuts are lightly browned, remove them from the heat and enjoy their enhanced flavor and crunchy texture.


Arrange the fruits and nuts on the snack board

  • Place the cut fruits such as strawberries, grapes and orange slices in different places on the serving board.
  • Sprinkle roasted nuts such as almonds, walnuts and cashew nuts around the fruits for a playful effect.
  • Create harmony between colors by, for example, placing red strawberries next to green grapes, and mix different textures by presenting crunchy nuts next to juicy fruits.

Add dipping sauce if desired

  • Add a dipping sauce such as honey, yogurt or chocolate to your fruits and nuts.
  • Pour the dip into a separate container next to your fruit and nuts.
  • Dip the fruits and nuts in the sauce for extra flavor and enjoy the combination.
  • Experiment with different types of dip to see which one you like best!

Decorate with fresh herbs

Decorate your snack board by placing fresh herbs such as mint leaves or thyme on it. Place the herbs strategically between the other snacks for a fresh look. Remember to gently wash the herbs and pat dry before use. With this simple addition you can make your drinks board even more attractive!
