1package crostini(or 1–2 varieties of your favorite crackers)
Slice the cheese into slices or cubes. I like to mix up the shapes. Cheddar usually cuts well into cubes, and manchego usually cuts well into triangle-shaped slices. Gouda is nice in rectangular slices. It all depends on the size/shape of the cheese, so do what you like!
Slice the salami into ⅛ to ¼ inch slices. Place a large wooden cutting board or platter in front of you.
Drain the olives and place in a small dish. Spoon the jam into another small dish. Place both of the dishes on the cheese board.
Arrange the cheese on the cheese board. I make 2–3 piles/clusters of each type of cheese to keep it visually interesting.
Place the salami on the board in 3–4 piles. Place crackers on the board in 3–4 piles. You may not have room for them all.
Fill in the holes with small piles of marcona almonds and apricots. Serve with additional crackers on the side.
Don’t forget a small spoon for the jam and a small fork for the olives!
Note: The wooden board that I used was 15 inches in diameter. You may need to scale ingredients up or down depending on the size of your wooden board or serving platter. Use your favorite varieties of cheese in place of the cheddar, manchego, and gouda, if you'd like!
