Meat and Cheese Platter Ideas

Who doesn’t love a meat and cheese platter? Vegans and vegetarians, I guess. But outside of that, these platters can have appeal for just about anyone. I love putting elaborate platters for parties, but simpler ones for dinner.

Assembling Your Platter

How you assemble your platter will depend on the meat and cheese you choose and how they’re cut. Thinly sliced meats can be rolled up and arranged on the platter. Sliced cheese can be layers from the outside of the platter to the inside. Cubed cheeses can be arranged together.

Garnish with kale or parsley. Throw on some grapes for more visual appeal and color.
