Smorgasbord: A fancy way to say a random assortment of things.

The trick to any good assortment is to place atop a great board. This artsy fartsy slab of wood (purchased at Target, or shall I say “Targé”) takes the assortment from chaotic to curated.

Make it easy on yourself this holiday. Throw whatever you have in your fridge onto a pretty plate and call it a “Smorgasbord.” Now sit back and sip your champagne, because you my friend have earned yourself a fancy-pants party.

1/2 c Raspberries

1/2 c Green Olives

  1. Slice the sweet potato very thinly. Toast the slices in the toaster (you may need to toast them a few times). Alternatively, you can roast the sweet potato slices in the oven for 10 minutes on each side. Sprinkle with salt and spread out evenly on your board.

  2. Slice fennel down the middle. Peel off the fennel’s layers, one by one, placing on their side in order of thickness on the board.

  3. Place all other ingredients around the sweet potatoes and fennel in however fashion you see fit!
