In the grand scheme of Thanksgiving, easy to prep parts of the meal are the way to go. I love a shortcut on a day when there are 10+ items on the menu. This Thanksgiving Cheese Board requires zero cooking, per usual, and really is just a collection of some of my most favorite things artfully arranged. Ready – let’s break it down!

There are lots of cheeses and meats, plenty of olives, dried fruits, crostini, bread sticks, nuts, pickled things, mini apples and persimmons. I went for a bit of a darker theme this year to match the full table spread, which means there’s a lot of orange on there in the way of persimmons and mimolette cheese! I added a variety of crackers (just grabbed a few various crackers from Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods that varied in color) plus some castelvetrano olives and a mixture from my favorite olive bar. I threw some honeycomb on top of a wheel of brie and some candied nuts on top of a triple creme. AND some marinated artichoke hearts. Simply drain the canned artichoke hearts and toss them with a vinaigrette and boom.
