Summer Cheese Board with Spicy Feta and Grilled Fruit

Who says you need to add multiple kinds of cheese to your cart to pull off an impressive cheese board? Keep it simple by choosing one crowd-pleaser – like feta – and jazz it up with a zesty, spicy topper. A generous hunk of honeycomb adds wow-factor to this cheese board – be sure to place it on a serving plate on the board, since it will release a pool of honey.

How to make

Ingredients

  • 1

    clove garlic, finely grated or pressed
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL)

    olive oil, divided, plus additional for grilling
  • 2 tsp (10 mL)

    PC® Black Label Peperoncini Chopped Hot Chili Peppers In Oil
  • 1 tsp (5 mL)

    grated lemon zest
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL)

    fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp (5 mL)

    fresh thyme leaves
  • 12

    slices baguette (1/2-inch/1 cm thick slices)
  • 2

    firm ripe peaches or plums, halved and pitted (Tip: Use a peach and a plum for extra variety.)
  • 100 g

    feta cheese (brick), drained and cut into 12 slices
  • 1 jar (400 g)

    PC® Black Label Honeycomb in Wildflower Honey
  • 1/3 cup (83 mL)

    roasted cashews

How to make

  • Step 1

    Stir together garlic, 1 tbsp (15 mL) oil, the peperoncini, lemon zest, lemon juice and thyme in small bowl. Set aside.

  • Step 2

    Preheat barbecue to medium. Brush grill lightly with oil. Brush both sides of baguette slices with 2 tsp (10 mL) of the remaining oil, dividing evenly. Brush cut sides of peaches or plums with remaining 1 tsp (5 mL) oil, dividing evenly.

  • Step 3

    Arrange baguette and peaches or plums, cut sides down, on grill. (Tip: Use a greased grill tray if you have one). Grill, lid down, turning baguette once, until baguette is crisp and light golden and peaches or plums are grill-marked, 4 to 6 minutes. Transfer to cutting board; cut peaches or plums into wedges.

  • Step 4

    Arrange feta on serving plate; spoon peperoncini mixture over top. Place honeycomb on serving plate beside feta (honey will pool out of honeycomb; use to drizzle over topped baguette.)

  • Step 5

    Assemble cheese board: Place plate of feta and honeycomb on large serving platter, cheese board or cutting board. Add baguette, peaches or plums, and cashews to platter or board. To serve, top baguette with feta and peaches or plums. Drizzle with honey from honeycomb; if desired, cut off chunks of honeycomb and serve with baguette.

  • Try this:

    If your fruit is too soft for grilling, just slice them up and serve on the board as-is.
