Make the pickled shallots and serve in a small bowl. For a more pungent kick, prepare them the day before you plan to serve this board.
Prepare the fruit and vegetables: Cut the lemon into 8 wedges. Cut the tomatoes into just under 0.5 centimeter slices. Cut the cuumbers into thin coins. Using a mandoline or a very sharp knife, cut the onion into paper-thin slices.
Prepare the other components in the style that works best for you, then arrange everything on and around your board. Top with optional garnishes. Set out a toaster for anyone who wants a warmed or toatsed bagel. Come together and enjoy!
