Main dish to follow cheese tasting?

Liana Krissoff | Nov 29, 201105:30 AM     7

On our way home from Apalachicola for Thanksgiving, the family and I stopped in Thomasville, Georgia, to visit the lovely Sweet Grass Dairy cheese shop. I picked up a bunch of cheeses (the tomme, Asher Blue, the Camembert-style double cream, and a French aged sheep's milk) and some dry salami. Now I want to have a cheese tasting dinner! I have some ideas about accompaniments for the cheeses and salami themselves (almond crackers, sweet-onion confit, candied or spiced pecans...), but I'm wondering what to serve as the actual dinner, either before or after the cheeses. Something simple, of course, and not too filling. Any ideas? I don't know why I'm having such a hard time coming up with a plan, but it could be because I just wanna eat that cheese already!
