Ingredients4 eggs 1/4 cup capers 3/4 cup cream cheese (flavor to your preference) 4 bagels, sliced in half (everything, plain, sesame etc.) 12 oz. smoked salmon, pre-sliced 1 heirloom tomato, thinly sliced 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced 1 English cucumber, thinly sliced 1 small lemon, thinly sliced 5 radishes, thinly sliced 2 ripe, Fresh California Avocados, seeded, peeled and quartered 1 cup micro greens 3 sprigs fresh dill, for garnish
- To boil the eggs, bring a small sauce pot of water to a rolling boil. With a slotted spoon, gently add the eggs and boil for 7-8 minutes.
- Immediately transfer the eggs to an ice bath (a medium bowl filled with half water/half ice) to cool down for 2-3 minutes. Once cooled, gently peel off the shells, slice eggs in half and set aside.
- To begin assembling the board, place the capers and cream cheese into small bowls and arrange on the board with serving spoons and spreaders.
- Arrange bagels onto one half of the board or serve in a separate basket.
- Gently arrange smoked salmon slices onto the board and produce fixings around capers and cream cheese bowls until the board has filled out.
- Garnish with fresh dill.
Variations: Add in additional proteins such as crisp bacon strips.
Serving Suggestion: The board can be prepared ahead of time but perishables such as cream cheese and smoked salmon should remain chilled until ready to serve.
Beverage Pairing: Pair with a mimosa or a Bloody Mary.
*Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
I love using a mandolin to make my produce slices uniform and for much faster prep.
