  • 1 6 oz bag Cracker Barrel Aged Reserve Cheddar cheese cubes
  • 1 6 oz bag Cracker Barrel Cheddar Jack cheese cubes
  • ½ cup jam (I used fig jam)
  • 1 8 oz log of salami, sliced
  • Assorted crackers
  • Assorted fresh fruit (I used strawberries, blackberries, and grapes)
  • Your choice of nuts (I used rosemary marcona almonds from Trader Joe's)


  • Place a large wooden board on a flat surface. Place the Cracker Barrel cheese cubes in piles around the board.
  • Pour the jam into a small bowl and place on the board.
  • Arrange the sliced salami in several rows on the board. Place the crackers in piles around the board.
  • Fill in the larger gaps with piles of fresh fruit. Then, fill in the smaller gaps with the nuts.
  • Serve immediately. Alternatively, carefully place plastic wrap over the board and refrigerate until ready to serve.


I find that the board is best served within a few hours of preparing. Avoid making this the day before as the items can dry out and the crackers will get soggy.
The nutrition facts are for the cheese, salami, and jam only. Crackers, fruit, and nuts are not included.
If you can't find fig jam, strawberry jam or raspberry jam would be a great substitute.
