Grazing boards have come a long way and have become popular for both hosting parties, or just to have at home with your family. The versatility of grazing boards allows you to cater to many tastes and you can assemble it with what you have on hand.
For our family, it works great because the kids can pick and choose the veggies they like and plate it up as they like.For meals at home, I try to keep a good lean protein, colorful nutritious vegetables, assorted condiments, and some variety of bread.
I thought I’d share our family favorite salmon recipe along with some sides that help make this a complete meal.
Flaky and perfectly cooked salmon to serve with a dill sauce.
