Bring out the Bagels

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • Pickled shallots
  • 2 cups black grapes
  • 1 cup assorted fresh berries
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 medium tomatoes
  • 2 small English cucumbers
  • ½ medium red onion
  • 6 oz. Lox, any type
  • 8 oz. whipped cream cheese, vanilla or plain
  • 6 oz. spreadable white or goat cheese
  • 18 mini bagels
  • Fresh dill, flat-leaf or curly parsley and mint, for garnish
  • Fresh edible flowers, for garnish
  • Fresh fig, for garnish

WHAT YOU DO:

  1. Make the pickled shallots and serve in a small bowl. For a more pungent kick, prepare them the day before you plan to serve this board.
  2. Prepare the fruit and vegetables: Cut the lemon into 8 wedges. Cut the tomatoes into just under 1/4 “ slices. Cut the cuumbers into thin coins. Using a mandoline or a very sharp knife, cut the onion into paper-thin slices.
  3. Prepare the other components in the style that works best for you, then arrange everything on and around your board. Top with optional garnishes. Set out a toaster for anyone who wants a warmed or toatsed bagel. Come together and enjoy!
