The 4th of July is coming up quickly! I love the 4th of July! I love…Americans celebrating the signing of the Declaration of Independence… Americans celebrating with family and friends…Americans waving the Red, White, and Blue…Americans listening to Patriotic Songs…Americans watching fireworks exploding in the night…The 4th is a day of celebration.
4th Of July Celebration
a festive picnic or barbecue celebrated on the 4th of July to commemorate the signing of The Declaration of Independence, featuring creative recipes, colorful red, white, and blue decorations, American flags, parades and fireworks
My menu for our 4th of July Celebration will include many summertime favorites…Lots of cold picnic food to help battle the heat.
Cheese Board with crackers, fruit, nuts, olives, Peppadew peppers, prosciutto and summer sausage.
I love the proscuitto rolled into little florets! I got the idea from Cheese Grotto.
Watch this video from Cheese Grotto, showing how to build your own cheese plate.
This cute mouse cheese board…made in Vermont!
Another cutting board made in Vermont with a much simpler cheese presentation.
Customize your cheese board by adding any other cheeses, nuts, pesto, hummus, veggies, artichoke hearts, bread or crostini.
Another way to use the sweet piquanté pepper or Peppadew pepper, is to stuff with boursin cheese and top with a pecan or walnut. You can leave it on the cheese board or serve it as a separate appetizer.
- 1 (14 ounce) jar Peppadew peppers
- 1 (5.2 ounce) package Boursin Cheese, garlic and fine herbs or white goat cheese
- 1 package walnuts or pecans, halved
- Slice Peppadew peppers in halves or quarters.
- Spread with Boursin cheese.
- Top with a walnut or pecan half or quarter.
- Serve on a platter.
NotesThis is a wonderful sweet/ spicy combination.
