Our Veggie Holiday Tree is a healthy holiday snack. It is just as much fun to decorate as it is to eat! We hope your Holidays are Twice As Good.
Veggie Holiday Tree
- Wash and dry all vegetables.
- Cut the stocks off both heads of broccoli and reserve all the florets.
- Slice the cucumbers into 1 inch pieces.
- Cut the bottom and top off of the yellow bell pepper, remove the seeds and slice the pepper in half. Use a star shaped cookie cutter to cut a star shape out of the yellow bell pepper.
- Wrap the cone shaped styrofoam with plastic wrap.
- Insert a toothpick 1 inch from the bottom of the styrofoam. Press a broccoli floret into the toothpick stem first. Repeat this going all the way up the cone covering the entire cone with broccoli florets.
- Place additional toothpicks between the broccoli florets and gently press the red tomatoes, yellow tomatoes, and cucumber slices to look like ornaments on a tree.
- Last place a toothpick at the top of the tree and gently press the star shaped yellow bell pepper on the toothpick.
- For the dipping sauce, combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Pour into a serving bowl and enjoy with the assorted vegetables.
