  • 2
    Rinse and thoroughly dry vegetables. Trim broccoli and cauliflower floret stems.

    Arrange broccoli on serving platter to form tree shape and tomatoes to form garland. Arrange bell pepper to form star and cauliflower to form snow (see photo). If desired, cover and refrigerate up to 4 hours.
  • 4
    Just before serving, arrange pretzels at bottom of tree to form trunk. Serve with dip.

Expert Tips

  • Use mini star- or heart-shaped cookie cutters to cut shapes from yellow and red bell peppers or thick slices of cheese. Top the tree platter with a star cutout, and trim the vegetable tree with heart-shaped cutouts. Or try using red bell pepper strips as garland.
