Healthy Food Christmas Tree, for Any Time of Year !
20 mins (prep 20)
11 ingredients
20-30 servings
I was looking for inspiration for a veggie tray and saw a photo on the Net that got me thinking. From there I devised my own variation and here it is :) Use any cheeses that can be cut into blocks (preferably of different colours for contrast) For instance, I used Westfriese kruidenkaas(a herb cheese), Cantenaar(a yellow mature cheese) and a mild white goats cheese. All measurements are approximate because it depends entirely on how many you are serving and how large you make your "tree". Serve with a pot of toothpicks so that your guest can select their pieces of choice. Excellently healthy for a party crowd and great addition for those of us trying to make our nibbles a little healthier.
