You must make this bright, colourful rainbow snack board for your next Pride celebration. There’s no real recipe or rules when it comes to building a snack board: Load up on your favourite fresh fruits and veggies, and if you’re not sure where to start, choose in-season produce like fresh strawberries, ripe tomatoes and juicy mangoes. Pair with a few dips (because who doesn’t love a good dip?), something savoury like cured meats or salty olives and of course, you can’t forget the cheese. Grab a large tray, layer all those beautiful colours into a rainbow and most importantly, have fun!
Grab a large cutting board. Wash and prep all your produce and ingredients. Group each item according to the colours of the rainbow.
Begin building your board starting with the red-coloured ingredients: red cherry tomatoes, sweet cherries, strawberries sliced in half, salami folded into quarters and stacked together to form a salami river, pomegranate and red pepper jelly.
Next, the orange ingredients: cheddar cheese sliced into triangles, orange cherry tomatoes, mango, dried apricots, sweet potato crackers for texture and carrots for crunch.
Then, the yellow ingredients: heirloom carrots cut into sticks, sea salt crackers to pair with cheese and creamy Camembert cheese cut into wedges.
Next, the green ingredients: cucumber sliced into rounds, avocado hummus or guacamole, juicy green grapes, briny green olives and kiwi cut into cute design.
Lastly, the blue and purple ingredients: blueberries, blackberries, creamy beet hummus, heirloom carrots cut into sticks, salty olives, salami cut into rounds and cranberry hazelnut crackers.
Fill in any additional space, ensuring the board looks full and festive. Serve and enjoy!
