Here are a few ideas on how to create some Christmas fun with fruits and veggies.

Add some craisons (dried cranberries) and walnuts to your salad

Bring a plate of veggies but arrange them as a Christmas tree.
Celery and cucumber sticks make great branches. Tomatoes can be baubles and red capsicum can be tinsel or even cut into star shapes. Or create the tree by alternating row of steamed broccoli with cherry tomatoes. Use a dip, pretzels or mushrooms as the trunk.

3. Create a 3D Christmas tree
Buy a polystyrene cone shape. Cover it in foil or cling wrap. Skewer, using tooth picks, a range of chopped veggies, cherry tomatoes, small mushrooms. Insert tooth picked veggies into cone to create a tree.

4. Dips (to accompany veggie platters)

For the red layer, finely cut tomatoes, red capsicum and mix with a dash of sweet chilli sauce.
