    This veggie tree is a "hit" of the party; use any type of vegetable or fruit you want to use with your favorite dip. The veggie tree can be used at any type of party; change the decoration on the tray to reflect holiday or occasion. This one was for Christmas.

    For the veggie tree - wrap styrofoam cone with curly lettuce; insert 1/2 toothpick into the veggie to place on the cone; start at the bottom; layer veggies cut to size if applicable (cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, radishes, broccoli florets, cauliflower florets, carrots,etc.); use a cherry tomato at the top.

    For the fruit tree - cut apple slices and soak them in lemon juice; wrap styrofoam cone with curly lettuce or kale leaves; place 1/2 toothpick into apple to stick into the cone; layer fruit from the bottom; use a piece of star fruit at the top.

    To display:

    Use a tray with a side on it; layer with rock salt; place "decorated" cone in the center; decorate with resin figurines and figures; you can use small pine boughs, holly leaves to decorate tray; on one side, place a small bowl to hold dip; on the other side a small toothpick holder to hold toothpicks. A small votive candle could be placed on the display if the tray is large enough.


    Dips for veggie tree could be bottled salad dressing or homemade; fruit dips can be bought at the grocery store or homemade.

    It is a conversation piece plus a healthy snack for holiday enjoyment.

    Cover a Styrofoam cone with curly lettuce; add slices of apples beginning from the bottom and adding slices until you reach top of cone; place a cherry or piece of pineapple for the topping.

    Place on a silver tray; add rock salt around the fruit tree; add a ceramic snowman or Christmas ceramic piece, a small votive candle; if the tray is large enough you can add a small toothpick holder or even the small bowl of caramel dip.

    If there is not enough space on the fruit tree tray; make another tray to hold your dip and toothpick holder - use another silver tray, put rock salt on the tray, add a pretty Christmas bowl, toothpick holder, a votive candle, a snowman figurine.


    Light the candle and see your guests "flock" to the Christmas fruit or veggie tree.

    You can also make a veggie tree using veggies on the cone.
