1. Using a rolling pin or wine bottle, roll out the sandwich bread and cut off just the ends of the bread.
2. Spread the bread with a thin layer of cream cheese and olive tapenade.
3. Tightly roll up the sandwich bread into a “sushi” roll and cut into 6 even pieces. Place the rolls on a large wood board or platter.
4. Cut the avocado in half and remove the pit. Cut the avocado into a checkerboard pattern and squeeze with lime to prevent the avocado from browning. Place a cherry tomato in each avocado half and place on the board.
5. Place a few small bowls on the board or platter and fill with nuts, olives and mozzarella balls.
6. Alternate handfuls of fruits, vegetables, crackers and remaining snacks all of the over board until it’s totally covered with no spaces/board showing.
7. Place picks or sticks around the boards or in a seperate bowl for serving.
