This dish will make anyone swoon! Arrange a few modest delicacies in the right way on a plate and you end up with a creation that's more mouthwatering than any of its parts alone. You don't necessarily have to stick to what I've chosen for my platter here, but if you decide to come up with your own collection of goodies, just make sure everything you choose will taste and look great together (pepperoni slices and Kraft singles probably aren't going to win you too many points). If you make all of my suggested recipes as written, you'll have a very ample platter for two. But if you decide to substitute, be sure to make enough of everything so your platter looks nice and full. When you're ready to arrange the platter, place the greens in the middle of the plate and arrange the other foods in small, neat piles around the center.
