- Dress up your cheese plate with cheese condiments. See our list of the many different ones, from the familiar like nuts and dried fruits, to mostarda and wine jelly.
|It’s National Cheese Day, so invite a few friends over for a cheese-tasting party. Many people dress up the cheese tray with fruits and nuts—but why not dress up the cheeses themselves? Soft and semisoft cheeses like chèvres and blues lend themselves to toppings. Press finely- or coarsely-chopped nuts into the tops—pistachios and almonds go well with most cheeses. Or try chopped sun-dried tomatoes moistened with just enough olive oil to hold their shape, a dry pesto or sweet or savory chutneys. You don’t need to dress up every cheese on the platter, but one or two will add pizzazz to your total presentation.
