Build the Ultimate Low Sodium Grazing Board with a fantastic assortment of low sodium appetizers, cheese, and snacks. It’s perfect for a family movie night or a party. Gather your low sodium ingredients and start grazing!
A grazing board is a delectable way to share a meal. It’s a mix of your favorite snacks and nibbles arranged artfully on a board or platter. I’ve combined some of my family’s favorite low sodium appetizers and bites to create the Ultimate Low Sodium Grazing Board. It’s filled with low and no-sodium foods, making it a safe and delicious way to entertain or snack throughout the day.
You can easily create a grazing board filled with your favorite low sodium foods. Pay attention to how much you eat to count your daily sodium intake accurately.

How to Make the Ultimate Low Sodium Grazing Board
There’s no wrong way to assemble a grazing board. As long as it’s chock full of your low sodium favorites, it’s perfect!
To make this board, start by piling and layering the crackers in the center. Next, add the fruit, followed by the fruit spread and the Swiss cheese slices.
Place a small bowl of the Low Sodium Marinated Mozzarella Balls in one corner. I like to place the bowl on a small plate so I can skewer a few mozzarella balls around the board for easy access.
Fill another corner with a small bowl of Low Sodium Caramelized Nuts with Brown Sugar and Spice.
Add a small plate of Low Sodium Apple & Goat Cheese Appetizers in the last open corner, and your board is ready to serve!
Be sure to place small cheese knives and serving spoons next to your board for easy serving.
Variations on a Delicious Theme
The only limits on variations for this grazing board are your imagination and sodium limits. One easy way to change it up is to use your favorite seasonal fruits. Grapes, fresh pineapple, and berries are always an excellent addition to a cheese board.
Add a low sodium dip, like my Low Sodium Ranch Dressing with Greek Yogurt , and a pile of fresh veggies like carrot or celery sticks and broccoli or cauliflower florets.
I love adding a jam or spread to a grazing board. My friends at Aldi make the most delicious fruit spread. I picked up their Specially Selected Cheese Pairing Spread Set and added the Fig & Honey Spread. It is delicious with a slice of their Happy Farm Swiss Cheese on a rice cracker or Hint of Salt Wheat Thin. All four spreads in the set are zero sodium, Hint of Salt Wheat Thins contain 3.4 mg of sodium per cracker, and Signature SELECT Original Rice Crackers contain 5.3 mg per cracker.
Another Aldi grazing board favorite is the Specially Selected Glaze with Balsamic Vinegar or Modena. It’s zero sodium, and fantastic drizzled on my Low Sodium Marinated Mozzarella Balls.
Ultimate Low Sodium Grazing Board FAQs
Can I make this ahead?
Absolutely! I love a make-ahead dish, and this grazing board is perfect. All the items on this board are at their best in taste and texture when they’re at room temperature, so I recommend assembling your grazing board at least an hour in advance.
You can assemble the board with the cheeses and fruit only, wrap it tightly in plastic wrap, and store it in your fridge for up to one day before serving. Take the board out of the refrigerator, add the rest of your snacks, and let it rest at room temperature for at least an hour before serving.
Are there other low sodium cheeses I can use?
Yes, there are other low sodium cheeses you can use. Cream cheese and mascarpone are low sodium options. Boar’s Head makes a low sodium muenster cheese, and you can order low and no-sodium cheeses online. Learn how to choose the best low sodium cheeses here.
