Recipe Notes

  • If serving as part of a cheese spread, keep the pieces chunky and offer toothpicks for serving. If it’s the first course, chop everything smaller and offer forks. Chop it pretty small and serve it with hummus so people can pile it onto the hummus.
  • To toast the almonds, roast the whole almonds on a rimmed baking sheet for 12 to 14 minutes at 350 degrees F, then chopped them.
