It’s no surprise that I love a good hunk of cheese so a board filled with it is pretty much heaven. Cheese boards are perfect for happy hour, while you’re waiting for dinner to finish cooking, or when you don’t feel like making dinner at all. Despite some cheeses having a hefty price tag, you don’t have to break the bank to make a beautiful and tasty cheese board. I threw this board together for Easter and people snacked on it while the kids hunted for eggs. Everything I used is from Aldi and it cost less than $25! You can’t beat Aldi’s prices and their selection of cheese is always super fresh and tastes delicious. This post isn’t sponsored, I just really love their cheese 🙂
Cheese I Used
Specially Selected Aged White Cheddar (top left)
Happy Farms Garlic & Herb Goat Cheese (bottom left)
Specially Roasted Garlic with Tomato & Basil (bottom center)
Fairway Luxury Cracker Selection
Great Gherkins Whole Sweet Pickles
Specially Bite Size Dry Salami
Southern Grove Dried Tropical Pineapple
Spanish Stuffed Green Olives
For harder cheeses, I like to cut them into bite sized pieces so people can eat them more easily. Goat cheese is so soft I simply take it out of the package for people spread on their crackers. Speaking of crackers, the Fairway Luxury Cracker pack is amazing. I love that you get such a variety and you can’t beat the price! They also come packaged in a resealable plastic container.
And there you have it! An inexpensive cheese board that tastes just as delicious as it looks.

I too love Aldi's cheese selection – Love all the contents & set up of this board!! I may have to re-create this for Mother's Day – depending on what we do!
