Orzo Walnut Sultana Salad
Sultanas are golden raisins. Regular brown raisins or even dried cranberries can work too.
Combine pasta, vegetables, walnuts, and sultanas.
Whisk together olive oil and vinegar. Pour over pasta mixture and toss well.
Add salt and pepper to taste, cover, and refrigerate until ready to serve. Toss before serving.
Cheese on Board
Your selection of artisanal cheeses — that means specialty cheeses from small producers — should include at least 3–5 different cheeses. Include one hard, crumbly cheese like an aged Cheddar or dry jack, one creamy goat cheese, and then think in terms of a veined cheese like Gorgonzola or Blue, or a soft, buttery Brie or Camembert. Feel free to include one herb or fruit-laced cheese on your cheese plate.
