Tips for Plant-Based Antipasto ft. Treeline Cheese

Regular cheese boards are fun and all, but right now I am alll about Plant-Based Antipasto boards!

Speaking of!  Here are some tips to build your own scrumptious antipasto board featuring Treeline Cheese’s stellar, vegan, non-GMO, cashew cheeses (which are made with live probiotic cultures for natural fermentation, which aids in digestion!)


  • Start with a large surface like a wooden board or piece of slate. Anything that can be the vessel for all the delicious things is a great way to start!

  • Add in the star of the show (aka Treeline cheese) for structure. They act as delicious focal points to draw the eyes in!

  • Add little cups or jars to hold things, especially for liquids (like the marinated olives with Treeline Cheese!) It also adds depth and height to the overall presentation that is visually pleasing.

  • Fill in gaps with smaller snacking items such as nuts, seeds, or dried fruits. This also helps to make the board feel abundant when there is no surface peeking through.

  • Think about texture as much as flavor! When assembling, think about juicy versus crispy, crunchy versus tender, sweet versus salty, and so on and so forth. It makes the overall experience of looking and eating all the more engaging and fun!

  • Garnish with herbs to add layers of freshness! Herbs like rosemary are fantastic since they are a bit sturdier and can withstand time and warmer temperatures, than say, basil.

  • Work within a color scheme to help draw the cohesiveness of the different elements. Fun fact: Did you know Italians often make their food to resemble the colors of the Italian flag? (My Italian friend taught me that, and learned from his family!) With that in mind I kept this antipasto board’s theme red white and green!

  • A sign of a good platter is if people say it’s almost too pretty to eat! (But definitely dive in ASAP!)

  • The best part is sharing! So sit back, share moments and laughs, and cheers to deliciousness before the main course! (After all, antipasto translates to “starter” in Italian!)

  • ENJOY! P.S. Use code BEETHELOVE15 for a special discount!
