This way your guests can enjoy different textures and flavors that match perfectly with the cheeses and dips on the snack board. Don't forget to slice the bread for easy portions and to create a beautiful presentation.


Decorate with fresh herbs

Mix chopped fresh herbs such as basil, parsley or mint in olive oil and make a tasty dressing for your snack board. Sprinkle some finely chopped herbs over cheese cubes or use them as a garnish for tomato slices. Vary with different herbs to give your dishes a surprising twist.

Add olives and pickles

  • Cut a selection of green and/or black olives and gherkins into slices or pieces as desired.

  • Fill in any open spaces with green herbs such as parsley for a decorative touch.
  • Serve with small forks or skewers for easy consumption.

Present on a beautiful shelf

Arrange all ingredients nicely on a serving board and ensure an attractive presentation. Start by placing the larger pieces, such as cheese cubes, in the center of the board.
