Elen's guilty pleasure stems from childhood memories of frozen desserts. Her tastes have matured to include tart yogurt and coconut milk ice cream. Earthy nuts, sweet strawberries and ultra sweet Pomegranate Balsamic Vinegar compliment the coconut milk ice cream perfectly. Another plus? This one is dinner party worthy with very little effort.

This recipe came to us from a customer who says that this is her go-to dessert for her ladies card group. She uses our Pomegranate Balsamic which is the perfect compliment to fruit and a rich, creamy component like ice cream--or as in this recipe, mascarpone cheese. She builds it on a narrow serving platter and just hands out spoons. Then they dig in. You can also make this in pretty glasses. Use shot glasses to give everyone just a taste or in white wine glasses for a larger portion. Either way it's a gorgeous presentation.

Cheese boards are a great way to show off your creative side. And they're not just for dinner parties. Keep these ingredients on hand for a quick dinner on busy weeknights or a weekend snack to enjoy with a glass of wine. A cheese presentation is simple to put together, but the end product is decadent. There are no rules to putting out a cheese board, but here are some guidelines to pulling together the right combination of flavors and textures.
