Directions

For the marinated vegetables, add potatoes to a pot of salted boiling water and boil until tender (about 10 minutes). Then remove from water and rinse with cold water to chill. Repeat with green beans, but cook for just 2 minutes until bright green, but still slightly crunchy.

Toss vegetables with vinaigrette ingredients and store in the fridge until ready to assemble boards.

For good board assembly, place your cheeses and crackers first, followed by meats (rolled, folded, or piled). Once the basics of the board are in place, fill in spots with marinated veggies, dried fruits, nuts, seeds, and herbs.

Drizzle honey over some of the cheeses for a little sweetness.
