Parisian Dinner Party: Charcuterie, Cheese & Vegan "Boards"

When thinking about the guests at my party, I recognized that it was a diverse bunch. My brother's friend Jakob was coming, who is a vegan. My mom is a cheese-lover, and my father adores salami. So I figured this was the perfect chance to create a trio of "boards" if you will. I love setting these up on my living room coffee table so that as guests come in, they can nibble. It also buys you (the host) some time to put together finishing touches. 

Cinco de Mayo Dip: My Favorite Hot-Oil Guacamole, Extra-Chunky

For a while I contemplated sharing a recipe for anything other than guacamole because I get it...how many times can we sing praise for mashed avocado with cilantro and lime? I hear you. But wait... what if you don't have a go-to recipe for your favorite guac? What if you're always eyeballing this and that, sometimes achieving avocado nirvana, other times blinking doubly as you taste your acidic concoction? It has taken me a long time but I have found my favorite recipe, and I rarely stray from it.
