Forget the Christmas cookies (okay, maybe not completely), but here’s a vitamin-packed Christmas themed snack — a broccoli Christmas tree!
To make this broccoli Christmas tree, just arrange some asparagus stems to form the tree trunk. Then arrange broccoli florets into a tree shape. Decorate the tree with vegetables of your choice. I’ve used carrot slices, cherry tomatoes, olive slices and grapes.
Top with a star — to easily cut out the star, use a cookie cutter. I’ve used cheese, but you can use cantaloupe, yellow or orange peppers or anything you have on hand.
Serve with your favorite dip. It’s perfect for an office party or fun afternoon snack.
