The Ultimate Spring Grazing Board

We’re talking about the ultimate spring grazing board today, and I could not be more excited! If you love to pick and graze all night long, this board is for you. It’s got all of the components of a good cheese and charcuterie spread, plus two fun springtime snack recipes: a vibrant avocado dip and asparagus prosciutto toast! Perfect for making nights at home just a little bit more special.

what goes on the ultimate spring grazing board?

Here’s what we’ve got going on…

  • a creamy, zesty avocado dip full of lemon, basil, and olive oil
  • toasted sourdough bread slathered with greek yogurt and topped with roasted asparagus & salty prosciutto
  • two cheeses and some sliced, cured sausage (go with what you love here!)
  • briny castelvetrano olives (these are the BEST olives, in my opinion)
  • dried apricots & raisins for a sweet bite
  • toasted pistachios
  • taro chips for dipping into the avocado dip (any chip or cracker would be great)
  • fresh springtime strawberries and radishes

Creamy Avocado Dip

Spring Grazing Board

While I find this spring grazing board to be the perfect combination of flavors and fun things to snack on, get creative here! Use different ingredients you love or things you simply have on hand. I always try to go for a few sweet and a few savory bites.

I love adding the avocado dip and asparagus prosciutto toast to make this a little bit heartier of a board. Whenever I serve a spread like this as an appetizer, my grandparents always say they could eat it as their main meal. So that’s kind of where the inspiration came from. A fun way to mix up dinner and simply graze on different bites of food as you sip some wine, maybe put on a movie, or play a few games.

It’s fresh, fun, and I really hope you enjoy it!
