Little finger food appetizers are common to many cultures. There is a lot of overlap. Between the relish trays of the American South and French crudités which are often associated with charcuterie and whatever Italians call their groaning boards. For the latter I can only offer, again:

I certainly remember celery, carrots, cornichons, and black olives. I first encountered green olives stuffed with pimentos on a relish tray (five years old? six?). Probably refrigerator pickles and watermelon pickles as well.
That’s funny. One of my dads relatives was into melamine table wear and we all have diff pcs passed down from that collection. A lot of the pieces are illustrated. There’s a melamine tv dinner set around here somewhere we pull it out for movie nights. The plates have sections like a tin tray and a large popcorn tub.
Yo, I’m with you on the canned black olives: pure nostalgia. Used to stick them on each of my fingers as a kid. Tomorrow is my first thanksgiving away from my parents (I’m 35 haha) and I will miss the whole tray.
