These snacks are as simple as sliced cheese. Prepare them ahead of time to allow ample chill time. Be sure to garnish with a sprig of parsley or speared on rosemary twigs for a bit of panache.

For tailgating I like to make a platter of mixed marinated cheeses and vegetables. I then add a nice baguette to dip in the oils left on the platter.
