Gluten Free Cheese & Meat Plate


After a long week at work and a late lunch on Friday, I wasn't extremely hungry for a big dinner, so we opted for our favorite "meal". I use the word meal loosely as I wouldn't normally recommend this as a dinner option. But once the clock stuck 5 on Friday, wine was calling my name along with cheese, prosciutto, salami and Glutino's multigrain crackers. 

I decided to put together a post that includes our "go-to’s" for a gluten free cheese/meat plate for two or a party. These plates are always my favorite at wine bars and as appetizers at some of our favorite restaurants. This one may not be as gourmet, but the combination of cheeses and meats make it a close 2nd, but whose judging right? :)

All of the ingredients were purchased at Vons.

Glutino Multigrain Crackers- my one & only!
