  • cooked turkey breast

  • pretzels
  • Swiss cheese slices cut into quarters
  • dill pickle spears
  • pecans

  1. Place jam jars and any other containers you plan to use on the tray. It's easier to fill in your ingredients around them than to try to find a place for them later.

  2. Fill in your ingredients, one color at a time so that you have a visually-appealing variety of colors spread out across the tray.
