Wisconsin Cheese Recipe Inspiration: Picnic Week


by Wisconsin Cheese

Who doesn’t love a summer picnic? Whether you’re with friends at a concert in the park or with family on a Sunday hike, picnics bring people together to slow down and enjoy summer’s simplicities over a glass of vino and a bite of Wisconsin Cheese.

Our favorite “go-to” picnic menu includes a cheese board, some tasty sandwiches and a hearty salad.

Later this week, Kelley of, Mountain Mama Cooks, shares her favorite salad and sandwich options for a family picnic.

Today, we’re talking cheese boards, and with summer’s bounty of fresh fruits and veggies, an array of cured meat options and endless cheeses to choose from, a Wisconsin Cheese board puts smiles on faces and satisfaction in empty stomachs. Here are a few ideas to get your cheese board creation started.

1. Wisconsin Cheddar + Wisconsin Blue Cheese + drizzle of honey + crusty bread

2. Wisconsin Gruyère + green apple + salami + crackers

3. Wisconsin Gorgonzola + Wisconsin Soft-Rind Cheese + dried apricots + fresh grapes
