Veggie Tulips

Seasonal, Snacks

Spring has officially sprung! Flowers are blooming and vegetables are ripe. I want to spend this first week of April focusing on Spring time and Easter festive goodies. I saw this cute, simple, easy appetizer arrangement and thought it was so perfect for a Spring time snack or as Easter hors d’oeuvres. And I ain’t April Foolin’ ya!

Ingredients

  • large carrots
  • cucumbers
  • toothpicks

Directions

  1. Cut the large carrots into round slices. Then using your knife, cut out 3 triangle slices at the top to make your tulip shape.
  2. Cut the cucumber into round slices. Then cut a large ā€˜Vā€™ into the slices to make your leaf shapes.
  3. Attach both the cucumber leaf and the tulip carrot on to the toothpick. Stick the finished flower into a cucumber, apple, or styrofoam block to have the flowers stand up together. Enjoy!
