Alexandra notes that the rounds can be chilled in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up a day in advance.
For a savory-sweet dessert, drizzle the rounds with honey. I also sprinkled them with some crushed nuts and, just because sometimes more is more, added a swipe of fig jam.
Vermont Creamery’s various flavors worked wonderfully for these — to my surprise, I liked the crispy rounds best with honey on the Three Peppercorn and Herb de Provence (though that could just be my wackadoo tastes) and plain with the shallot vinaigrette.
Being out of tomatoes, I used ribboned purple carrots, instead.
