(BPT) – If you have a love for the art of cheese boards, you’re certainly not alone. But if you sometimes find yourself stuck in a rut making the same old spread, well you’re not alone there either. This Saturday, July 25, is National Wine and Cheese Day, and to celebrate, Pretzel Crisps® is helping snack lovers take their next wine and cheese masterpiece up a notch.
Here are some top tips to turn your traditional cheese board into a work of art you’ll want to make again and again.
Mix Sweet and Salty
Get creative with what you already have on hand — after all, a cheese board doesn’t have to be filled with extravagant or exotic treats. Head to your pantry and choose a snack time favorite, like Buffalo Wing Pretzel Crisps. Next, venture to your refrigerator to see what fresh ingredients you have — maybe a hunk of white cheddar or baby mozzarella. But not to worry if you’re in between shopping trips — Only have string cheese on hand? Have a bag of trail mix you brought on that hike last weekend? Not a problem — this is a great time to get creative!

Make it Visually Engaging
Finally, don’t limit yourself to the same old cheese board. After all, the presentation is where you can get really creative and show your artistic side! Play with different shapes and colors to make your board visually appetizing. Here’s a pro-tip: Use cookie cutters to cut your meats and cheeses into unique shapes like hearts and stars or try adding serving bowls in a variety of colors and sizes for your nuts or fruit. Let your imagination run wild!
