Semi-hard: gouda, provolone, gruyere, or cheddar
Tangy: blue cheese or gorgonzola
Step 2: Add crackers and bread
Some favorite additions to a cheese tray are crackers, breadsticks, pita bread slices and baguette slices.
Step 3: Add something savory
Pick a few savory additions to compliment your cheese such as olives, nuts and meats like salami, sausage or prosciutto
Step 4: Add something sweet
Fruits like grapes, strawberries, pomegranate or apricots add a sweetness to your cheese tray. You can mix it up with a combination of fresh fruit, dried fruit and fruit jams.
