Instructions

  1. Make the Herb Yogurt Dip: In a small bowl, stir to combine the yogurt, lemon zest, lemon juice, dill, parsley, garlic powder, and black pepper.
  2. Remove lid from sardine can and place sardine can on board. Or drain the sardines and transfer them to a small bowl; flake with a fork if desired.
  3. Chop the cucumber and radishes into 1/8-inch-thick rounds. Cut the cheddar cheese into small cubes. Slice each fig in half. Arrange the veggies, fruits, and cheeses on a large platter with the crackers and pretzel rods. Add the nuts and olives, arranging them in small mounds in any open areas of the platter, or place them in small bowls and set them on the platter or just to the side of it. (Reduce cheese, nuts, olives, if desired, to cut sodium.)
  4. Set 2 cheese knives or butter knives near the platter so that guests can slice the Brie and blue cheese. Serve with toothpicks, small plates, and napkins.
