The Ultimate Caprese Salad Board

The Ultimate Caprese Salad Board | Entertaining ideas, party appetizers, cocktail recipes, party ideas and more from @cydconverse

Over the last few years I’ve been really into arranging a bunch of food on a board and serving it up as a casual weeknight dinner, a great party appetizer or a delicious mid-afternoon snack on a weekend. Something about food on a board is just so damn enjoyable, and people naturally seem to love food that’s interactive, which is why this one would make such a good addition to your next party. People love a great cheese board, but this is spin on the classic is even better with an excess of good fresh mozzarella and burrata, loaded up with a variety of tomatoes. Drizzle everything with a good olive oil, max out on fresh basil, then sprinkle the whole mess with yummy coarse grain sea salt and you’re in business.

Hi Pam! I love the sounds of "picky food" and it's so accurate! I got that particular board at TJ Maxx a while back. They always have great wood boards!
