“A fun spin on the classic Niçoise salad, this impressive appetizer board features a smoked salmon spread. Snappy green beans, fresh tomatoes, a medley of olives, and soft-boiled eggs sprinkled with chives and paprika serve as the ode to the classic, while seeded crackers and mixed nuts add a crunchy upgrade.”


    • 1 Smoked Salmon Cheese Ball (see associated recipe)
    • 3 cups fresh green beans, trimmed
    • 8 sheets seeded crackers, broken in half (4 oz.)
    • 2 soft-boiled eggs, halved
    • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh chives
    • ⅛ teaspoon paprika
    • ¼ cup roasted assorted nuts or trail mix
    • ½ cup mixed olives
    • 2 tablespoons whole-grain mustard
    • 1½ cups cherry tomatoes, halved


  • 1 Place cheese ball in a small serving bowl; arrange in the center of the board.
  • 2 Scatter green beans on two opposite ends of the board, letting them hang slightly over the edge. Arrange crackers on the remaining two ends of the board.
  • 3 Place 2 egg halves on each side of the cheese ball. Sprinkle the exposed yolks with chives and paprika. Place nuts (or trail mix) in a small bowl; set next to the eggs on the board.
  • 4 Place olives in a small bowl or ramekin; place near one corner of the board. Spoon mustard into a small jar; place next to the cheese ball.
  • 5 Scatter tomatoes over the board, filling in any empty spaces.
