Description

A relish tray in the shape of a Christmas tree. Fun for kids to make!

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch Celery
  • 4 whole Peeled Baby Carrots
  • ¼ whole Green Bell Pepper
  • 8 whole Red Teardrop Or Cherry Tomatoes
  • 8 whole Yellow Cherry Tomatoes
  • 2 whole Crimini Mushrooms
  • 3 whole Thick Slices Of Cucumber (skin On)
  • 5 whole Black Olives
  • 3 whole Large Green Olives
  • 1 whole Radish

Preparation

Cut the celery into sticks (various sizes are fine).

On a large flat plate, lay out about 8 celery sticks in the shape of the tree top. Make sure to leave enough room for the tree top decoration.

Continue to lay the celery sticks on the plate to form the entire tree.

Then fill in the tree with the remaining celery sticks.

Lay out the celery so some have the light colored sides up and others have the dark sides up.

Cut the carrots in quarters lengthwise.

To make the carrot garland, lay out the carrots about 2 inches from the bottom of the tree in a zigzag direction.

The bottom string of carrot garland should take about 6 pieces of the cut carrots.

Next, about two inches above the first string of carrot garland, lay out about 4 pieces of carrots in a zigzag shape to form the second string of garland.

Then about two inches above the second string of carrot garland, repeat to make the third string of garland up towards the top of the tree.

Cut the tomatoes in half width-wise.

Then add the cut tomatoes smooth side up to make ornaments (if you have enough tomatoes, an option is to use the non-stem half only which looks prettier as an ornament).

Next, cut a quarter piece off of a whole green bell pepper and cut about 12 very thin pieces that are about 3 inches long.

Lay out 4 rows of the thin pieces of bell pepper in between each strand of carrot garland to make the bell pepper garland.

Then lay the whole yellow cherry tomatoes on the tree as ornaments.

Next, cut the mushrooms in quarters. Then add 6 of the cut pieces to the bottom of the tree to form the trunk.

Cut the cucumber slices about an inch thick (with the skin on). Then cut each slice into quarters to form 4 triangles. Lay out the triangular pieces of cucumber on the tree as ornaments.

Then cut the green olives into about ½ inch thick slices and lay them on to the tree as ornaments.

Next, cut the black olives in half lengthwise and lay them cut side down on to the tree as ornaments.

Lastly, make a rosette out of the radish and use it to top the tree.

Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
