Butter? On a board? YES, it’s called a butter board, and that’s what we’re doing! Whether it’s a date night in or you’re hosting a gathering, butter boards are a creative new spin on the cheese and cracker type spread.


  • 1/2 cup butter (or vegan butter)
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh herbs
  • 1 tablespoon large flake salt or 1 teaspoon fine grain salt
  • 1/2 cup toppings of your choice


  1. Spread room temperature butter across a cutting board.
  2. Sprinkle liberally with flake salt, if using iodized or fine grain salt use only 1 teaspoon.
  3. Scatter toppings of your choosing atop the butter in a stylized fashion.
  4. Sprinkle with chopped herbs.
  5. Drizzle with anything you fancy that fits (honey, hot sauce, lemon juice, etc)
  6. Refrigerate if not serving immediately and bring to room temp as guests arrive.
