Mediterranean Snack Board

I love making this hearty protein board for a crowd. It’s got everything you need to make a nutritious plate with plenty of variety, including my Easy Beet Deviled Eggs and Smoked Salmon Cream Cheese Spread. 

I like to serve these two recipes with a rainbow of vegetables, seed crackers, and some of my favorite types of tinned fish, like wild-caught mackerel, sardines, and anchovies.

Protein is such an essential part of healthy aging, thanks to its role in building and maintaining lean muscle mass and supporting strong tendons and ligaments. Eating adequate protein is also super helpful for staving off cravings and encouraging satiation. 

I hope you can share this with some people you love!

Wishing you health and happiness,

Step 1 Mediterranean Snack Board Healthy Recipe

Step 1

Easy Beet Deviled Eggs

Place eggs in a small saucepan. Cover with cold water, place the pan over medium-high heat and bring to a boil. Turn off heat, cover and let the eggs sit for 10 minutes. Rinse the eggs under cold water and peel off the shells.

2. While the eggs are cooking, place a small saucepan over high heat with 2 cups of water and the beets. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let the liquid cool before continuing with the next step.

3. Once the beet water is cool, place the peeled eggs in the beet water. Allow them to soak for about 4 hours in order to pick up the pink color. They can also be left in the fridge overnight.

4. After a minimum of 4 hours, remove eggs from the water and slice in half lengthwise.

5. Remove the yolks and place them in a bowl. Mash the yolks with a fork together with the mayonnaise, mustard, and chopped tarragon.

6. Transfer the yolk mixture into a piping bag and refill the egg halves. Serve immediately or place in the fridge for future use.
