Fresh Fig and Cheese Plate

A Reader Recipe: Grana Padano and Fig Appetizer

When thinking of an appetizer to serve at upcoming holiday parties, skip processed, premade food and serve something fresh and whole instead. We love this idea from FitSugar reader CheesePlease; she posted it in the Snack Attack: Healthy Snack Ideas community group.

Think of Grana Padana as Parmigiano Reggiano's high-maintenance cousin. This cheese is less nutty and salty; a much more delicate cheese compared to your regular Parmesan. Pair Grana Padano with a high quality fig spread or preserve for an elegant and rustic appetizer!
