By now, you’ve likely seen the viral “butter board” trend going around, and we wanted to make our own Whole30 and dairy-free version by swapping out the butter and replacing it with nut “cheese.” Joshua McFadden of @jj__mc originally created the idea, and when Justine Doiron of @justine_snacks reintroduced it, we just had to hop on board!

Butter boards are said to become the next charcuterie board and be the most popular dish at your holiday get-togethers. You can customize the board with your choice of ingredients, but we paired ours with roasted garlic, chili oil, fresh rosemary and lemon.
