Ingredients & substitutions
- Cheese: These snack boxes contain three different cheeses; cheddar, gouda and brie. You can easily swap the cheeses to suit your own tastes.
- Fruit: Sliced apple and red grapes make up the fruit portion of these boxes. Again, you can easily add other fruits like tangerine segments or berries.
- Crackers: We like to use whole grain seeded crackers that have a boost of fiber. Other crackers like Ritz or Carrs will also work well.
- Optional Add-ins: Nuts or seeds would also go really well with this bistro snack box. Consider adding almonds, cashews or walnuts.
How to make a snack box
- Cut the brie into wedges and add to the lunch boxes along with the fruits, cheese slices and crackers.
Tips for making a cheese snack box
- Opt for small wheel of brie cheese. This makes it easier to cut the cheese into smaller wedges. Look for an 8 ounce wheel that you can divide into 8 wedges.
- Try swapping one of the fruits for dried fruit. While the fresh fruit is healthier with less sugar generally, dried fruit is such a strong complement to cheese and would go well with this snack box. Try cranberries, apricots or dates.
- Add a healthy dip. Avocado Hummus Dip or a Spinach Dip make excellent additions to these snack boxes.
- Avoid soft fruits. It’s best to avoid softer fruits like bananas or soft berries like raspberries as they can get banged around and get bruised, and peeled bananas will brown quickly.
Frequently asked questions
This depends on what fruits you are planning to use in the lunchboxes. Apples will brown after a little while, so it’s best to cut those on the morning you plan to have them or adding lemon juice to them to slow down the browning process. If using grapes and nuts, then you can easily make them around 3 days ahead of time, just keep the lid on the boxes so that the cheese doesn’t dry out.
