Unique Additions to a Cheese Board

Cheese Boards are a fantastic snack to have at parties and events. A wide variety of cheeses can provide a smattering of different flavors and tide guests over until the bigger dishes are ready. Although cheese boards can be great in their own right, they truly shine when complemented by other foods and condiments. Finding the right supplements to your cheese board can go a long way in improving its quality. However, you don’t want to supplement your cheese board with a cookie-cutter side dish, as you’ll want to truly stand out and make an impression on your guests. So what are some additions to a cheese board that are both unique and will taste delicious? Let’s take a look


Cheese and nuts have always been an amazing combo, meaning that you can’t really go wrong regardless of what nut you choose to serve with your cheese platter. However, one type of nut that goes especially well with the flavor profile of cheese is pistachios. The flavor profile isn’t also the only part of pistachios that pairs well with cheese, as the texture also plays off cheese well too. The hard crunchiness of pistachios goes very well with the soft gooeyness of cheese, creating an amazing combo when served together. Just about any nut will do as a side to a cheese platter, but if you’re looking for a unique and exceptional combo then pistachios will be a fantastic option. 

Dijon Mustard

Another great pairing to add to your cheese platter is dijon mustard. Not many people use dijon mustard with cheese platters or are familiar with the condiment at all. However, once you try it, you’ll surely see what all the hype is about. Dijon mustard has a strong tangy flavor with a tiny hint of spice, something that pairs extremely well with many kinds of cheese. Dijon mustard is also a spread that goes well with many other foods you might pair with cheese platters as well, such as meat. If you’re looking for a great option to spread on your cheese platter, dijon mustard could be the perfect solution. 

Pepper Jelly

A very unique addition to a cheese board is pepper jelly dip. Pepper jelly is a fantastic compliment to cheese boards, as the dip’s flavor profile really works well with cheese. Pepper jelly has a unique blend of sweet, sour, and spicy flavors, all of which would go wonderfully with the flavor of the cheese. Pepper jelly can also be easily spread on cheese and other foods, so it's not something that you have to spend lots of time preparing either. If you want a very unique condiment to serve with your cheese platter, then pepper jelly could be the perfect option for you. 


One of the more unique flavor profiles you can combine with a cheese platter are pickles. Pickles have a sour and salty taste, pairing extremely well with many types of cheese. In addition, the texture of pickles goes very well with cheese, making the two foods a perfect combo. That being said, pickles are quite the controversial food. Many people seem to either love pickles or absolutely despise them, and there is rarely any middle ground. However, if you’re someone who's a fan of pickles, pairing them with a cheese platter can create an amazing combination.
