Easy No-Cook Dinner Solution: A Cheese Board!

A cheese board is the perfect no-cook dinner. It’s great for those hot summer days when you don’t want to turn on the oven, or for movie and game nights at home. Follow these three tips for an easy no-cook cheese board dinner that’s ready in a snap!

1. Choose cheeses that play well with others

Gruyère and Emmentaler are wonderfully versatile. They also pair nicely with a wide range of beverages – wine, beer, cocktails, and non-alcoholic options.

2. Create one composed bite

A perfectly paired bite adds a special touch to your cheese board. Try prosciutto-wrapped Emmentaler and apple slices for a special touch that’s packed with flavor. Experiment with your favorite accompaniments to create your own bite. Crackers and dried fruit slices make a great base for adding slices of cheese and preserves, chutneys, pickles or charcuterie.

3. Dress up your popcorn

Who doesn’t love snacking on a bowl, especially with a few flavorful add-ins. Toss the popcorn with a drizzle of olive oil and pinch of salt. Top with shredded Gruyère cheese and black pepper. Rosemary or thyme are a great addition if you have them.

Grazing Boards Will Change Your Summer

Quick, easy snacks are a summer must-have. This summer? Enter: the grazing board. It’s a cheeseboard without the fuss. A snack with a purpose. A meal without the oven. Any way you see it, a grazing, or snack board, is a simple way to eat without the fuss.

We’re here to show you how easy they are with this simple formula:

Cheese + veg + meat + carb + extra

Don’t stress about what you put together. Use up leftover bread, a handful of nuts, pickles, lunch meat, and other items you have on-hand.
