Don't be afraid to try sweet and savoury flavours together, and to contrast your textures. A variety of products are great alongside deli meat. Try adding some pesto, salsa, and mushrooms sautéed in butter. And for a little bit of sweetness, use blueberry jam and caramelized onion confit. Complete your platter with a nice, soft cheese and some fresh and dried fruit.
