Wholesome Summer Mezze Board

No gathering is complete without a centrepiece mezze board. Rather than the usual store bought crackers, cheeses and preserved meats, we’ve given it our wholesome twist with (mostly) pure wholefoods.

We decided to go with smoked salmon for this platter rather than the usual selection of preserved meats. Smoked salmon is such a decadent and delicious option and brings your healthy, delicious omega-3 fatty acids to the table (literally). We definitely believe in all things in moderation here at Nutra Organics, but given that it’s Christmas and moderation goes out the window on Christmas, we thought that it would be best to exclude the cured meats from this years spread in favour of this healthier, lower salt and preservative free option. 

You can use our two dips from this years Christmas Cheers recipes, and then have fun styling an array of veggie sticks, nuts, fruits, olives and grilled eggplant around them.

1. Start by preparing everything that needs to be cooked, including the dips, and the grilled vegetables

2. Cut all the fruit and veggies (on the day for optimal freshness)

3. Begin assembling your grazing board by placing the dips,

4. Place the flatbreads close to the dips

5. Evenly place the fruits and veggies around the table, and try to balance the colour (not too much pink/red fruits right next to each other).

6. Fill in all the gaps with handfuls of olives, almonds, cashews, pepitas, sunflower kernels

Optional: style the dips with things like hemp seeds, sesame seeds, micro herbs and edible flowers
