I love a good cheeseboard. Any time that I have friends over or entertain, I always like to offer a pretty cheese board or charcuterie plate since it’s easy (and delicious) snacking. I also love any excuse to get creative and color coordinate. So with St. Patrick’s Day coming up, I wanted to do a twist on my regular spread and do more of a “green day” inspired snack board full of gorgeous green veggies, fruits, guac, candy, and cheese (obvi).
I headed to one of my favorite stores, World Market, to stock up on all the green treats they had from all over the globe. (Links to products below.)
I started with my go-to cheese board plate (similar here) that my spread quickly outgrew, so I decided to embrace the idea of making my kitchen island the center of attention and laid everything out there.
First, I placed small bowls that would hold the dips around so that they would anchor the snacks and then started layering in the good stuff. I made sure to use an odd number of bowls to keep things visually appealing.
Then I grouped the veggies together like green peppers, celery, sugar snap peas, cucumber, and green cauliflower. To the bowls I added green castelvetrano olives and pesto to dip.
Above the veggies, I added in fruits like green apple, pear, grapes, and kiwi. I added hummus and a garlic & herb spreadable cheese in the middle so you could dip the veggies or fruit in either one.
Then I found these fun, green guacamole flavored tortilla chips and mounded those by the bowl of guac. Together they were so good!
I layered in a few other crunchy snacks for texture like “Margarita Crunch” popcorn, wasabi peas, and wasabi almonds before finishing off the snack board with some suite treats.
For the dessert end, I added matcha green tea Pocky biscuit sticks, green tea Kit Kats, apple flavored candies, and green tea chocolate covered macadamia nuts.
And no get together is complete without a good wine to offer guests so I partnered with Winc who delivered four bottles straight to my door and tailored to my tastes. I took a quick quiz online and my delivery included my favorite, a sauvignon blanc, along with a chenin blanc, sparkling chardonnay, and a red blend. Having hand selected wine delivered definitely made this soirée easy to plan since I didn’t even have to leave the house or scour the wine aisle looking at labels. And Winc got it right too – we loved every bottle.
