Festive Tree Appetizer Centerpiece
Comment on this recipe
Most likely there will be a slight open space between the dish and the finished tree. You may want to lay around small broccoli florets for a nice finished look. Enjoy.
12-inch styrofoam cone
Aluminum foil, optional
A nice serving dish
5-1/2 cups cauliflower (about one small head)
4-1/2 cups broccoli florets (about one medium bunch)
12 cherry tomatoes
3 medium carrots, cut in 1/2-inch slices
1/2 cup small whole ripe olives
Dip or salad dressing
Cover the styrofoam cone with foil if desired. Attach cauliflower and broccoli to the cone by sticking one end of a toothpick into a floret and the other end into the cone, using the larger florets at the base. Attach a cherry tomato to the treetop. Attach carrots, olives and remaining tomatoes with toothpicks to the cone. Fill in any gaps with small florets, using half of a toothpick. Serve with dip or salad dressing.
