Here's my version which included a variety of cheeses as well as some simple apricot jam and fig paste by Rutherford and Meyer. I also tried to vary the texture of the crackers for interest and included pistachios and grapes for extra yummies.
This is a very elegant, yet easy appetizer that is such a crowd pleaser. I mean really, who doesn't love cheese? Wouldn't this be a great start to Thanksgiving day or a cozy treat to enjoy fireside on Christmas Eve? I'm thinking of giving it a nice fall makeover by incorporating some cranberry relish and toasted walnuts. What other flavors would you add to mix it up a bit?
