Who doesn’t love a themed grazing board? This turkey snack board is the perfect way to snack while cooking this Thanksgiving.

Use a halved pear to form the turkey’s body, complete with some candy eyes and a small piece of bell pepper for it’s beak. Then add pita triangles and sliced veggies (we used bell peppers, carrots and cucumbers here) to form it’s feathers.

Complete the look with some cheese slices cut into fall shapes (using small cookie cutters), nuts and dried fruit. Don’t forget the hummus for dipping!
