Ingredients

  • 4 peeled baby carrots
  • 5 black olives
  • 1 bunch of celery
  • 8 red teardrop or cherry tomatoes
  • 2 crimini mushrooms
  • 3 thick slices of cucumber (with the skin on)
  • ¼ of a green bell pepper
  • 3 large green olives
  • 1 radish
  • 6 yellow cherry tomatoes

Instructions

  1. Cut the celery into sticks (various sizes are fine)
  2. On a large flat plate, lay out about 8 celery sticks in the shape of the tree top
  3. Make sure to leave enough room for the tree top decoration
  4. Continue to lay the celery sticks on the plate to form the entire tree.Then fill in the tree with celery sticks
  5. Lay out the celery so some have the light colored sides up and others have the dark sides up
  6. Cut the carrots in quarters lengthwise
  7. To make the carrot garland, lay out the carrots about 2 inches from the bottom of the tree in a zigzag direction
  8. The bottom string of carrot garland should take about 6 pieces of the cut carrots
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. Then add the cut tomatoes smooth side up to the tree to make ornaments (if you have enough tomatoes, an option is to use the non-stem half only which looks prettier as an ornament)
  12. 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
  13. Then lay the whole yellow cherry tomatoes on the tree as ornaments
  14. Next, cut the mushrooms in quarters
  15. Then add 6 of the cut pieces to the bottom of the tree to form the trunk
  16. Cut the cucumber slices about an inch thick (with the skin on)
  17. Then cut each slice into quarters to form 4 triangles
  18. 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
  19. Next, cut the black olives in half lengthwise and lay them cut side down on to the tree as ornaments
  20. Lastly, make a rosette out of the radish and use it to top the tree
  21. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
