Holiday Wreath Cheese Plates
Beautiful ideas for creating holiday wreath cheese and veggie platters.
Last week one of my girlfriends sent me a text asking, "Hey, can I come over for a glass of wine this week?" You know you have a good friend when she invites herself over for a good chat and loads of laughter. Since this particular friend and I share of love of the holiday season, I threw together a quick Christmas cheese plate, lit a fire, and turned on some holiday music. I thought it turned out so darn cute that I had to share this holiday wreath cheese plate with you. This Christmas wreath cheese board would be the perfect compliment to the Mulled Wine recipe I posted yesterday! This holiday cheese board wreath is comprised of delicious ingredients that are in season now. The mandarin oranges are just incredible in December, and pomegranates and persimmons are just finishing up. For an extra indulgent cheese board I love to add a bit of broken up dark chocolate. This one here has hazelnuts. If you would like to make a dairy-free, vegan cheese board, you can do that too! My favorite vegan artisan cheeses are from Kite Hill and Miyoko's Kitchen.
