This Veggie Christmas Wreath platter is made with broccoli, cauliflower and cherry tomatoes. It's an easy, festive appetizer for the holidays!
II made one of those veggie Christmas trees for an appetizer before the big meal, and it was a big hit. It was super cute too. I was going to make the same thing this year, but I decided to do something a little different. I made this Veggie Christmas Wreath Platter, and you know, I think I like this even better!
I love munching on raw veggies, and luckily, most of the kiddos do too. One of my teens is definitely not a fan, but my little guy absolutely loves broccoli, and I think he'll be happy to see this wreath made out of broccoli and other fresh veggies.
I used a big old round tray from the Dollar Store, and then I lined it with aluminum foil. You can still see some crumpled edges, but, oh well!
I didn't want the wreath to be all broccoli, so I had to throw in some other colorful veggies too. I added some cauliflower and cherry tomatoes, but at first, the platter just looked like a bunch of different vegetables grouped together. So, I remade the entire appetizer tray and added a few pieces of cauliflower this time. Then, I grouped the tomatoes together so that they resembled berries -- much better!
Of course, every wreath needs a bow, so I made one out of red pepper slices.
I stuck a big bowl of our favorite homemade buttermilk ranch dressing in the center of the wreath. It's great for dipping, and so much better than the kind you get from the store!
It's smooth, creamy, tangy, and it makes plain raw veggies taste even better!
