Everybody loves a cheese board! They can turn a buffet into something special, and look amazing. This is how to make a savoury grazing platter that is healthy and appealing to most people.
Most grazing platters are heavy on processed meat, cheese and crackers. While tasty, they are high in calories and saturated fat. Instead, try using these healthier versions
Chicken breastgrilled and cut into bite-sized pieces
Carrot sticks, capsicum, celery sticks
One or two cheeses - I usually use Brie for the soft cheese and a hard tasty cheese e.g. vintage cheddar cheese A small amount packs the flavour in which means you'll eat less of it
Low carbohydrate crackers e.g. rice crackers and baked pea crisps from Harvest Snaps
Dips and spreads such as hummus and salsa which are healthier than a lot of other dips such as French onion.
Sun dried tomatoes or pickles
You can increase the size to cater for the number of guests you'll have. You can also put some sweet flavors in like dried apricots, grapes and honey. Nuts such as cashews and almonds go well too. Alternatively, you can make a separate platter for dessert, like my Dessert Grazing Platter.
Experiment with different combinations of flavors, adding in food that you enjoy.
