This Easter Cheese and Crudites Board is the perfect appetizer to set out for family before Easter dinner.
It's bright, fresh, and full of fresh spring flavors which is a nice change from the typical cheese boards that can at times be very rich and heavy.
Crudites is such a fresh and delicious way to serve veggies. You can blanch them quickly (here is the method) or serve then raw like I did. I used this bunny bowl to hold creamy garlic herb Boursin cheese for dipping and this tiny bunny candy dish for holding kosher salt. Radishes dipped in just a touch of salt are perfection!
For the cheeses I chose a creamy goat cheese that I topped with freshly chopped dill, Boursin spread and last but definitely my favorite on the board, a blueberry stilton. That blueberry stilton is hands down one of the most delicious cheeses for a spring inspired board and pairs so nicely with the chocolate eggs I hid beside the veggies as well as a glass of crisp Sauvignon Blanc. DELICIOUS!
The veggies include fresh asparagus spears with their ends trimmed, rainbow carrots, mini Persian cucumber slices, and radishes; think springtime in the garden!
To finish off the board I added pistachios, malted chocolate eggs, water crackers, and a few fresh ranunculas to fill in the spaces and make the board feel like a mini garden.
Tell me you don't want to dig into this edible garden of cheese, Easter chocolate, and crisp veggies! I'll say it once again, DELICIOUS!
