> 1 tbsp light mayonnaise
> 2 slices white or whole-wheat bread
> 1 large leaf butter lettuce
> 1 slice yellow Cheddar cheese
> 1/2 oz mini pepperoni  (about 6 slices)
> 1 orange
> 1/4 cup mini pretzel twists


Spread the mayonnaise on the bread. Tear lettuce leaf into 3 narrow strips. Tear cheese into 3 narrow strips. Across the top third of bread, layer 1 strip lettuce, then 1 strip Cheddar, then 2 slices pepperoni.
Across middle third, layer 1 piece lettuce, pepperoni, then Cheddar. Across bottom third, stack the remaining Cheddar, pepperoni, then piece of lettuce.
With a ¼- to ⅓-inch round cutter, cut 3 holes in 2 columns on each half of remaining bread slice. Place on top of sandwich. Trim crusts off and cut sandwich into 2 rectangles to form 2 columns of traffic lights. Cut the orange into wedges to serve with sandwich, along with the pretzels.


No small round cutter? Find a small condiment bottle cap that’s the same diameter and use that to cut out the holes.
