Ingredients

  • 3 small broccoli crowns
  • handful of cherry tomatoes
  • cucumber
  • red pepper
  • medium yellow pepper
  • 1/2 cup sour cream or plain greek yogurt
  • 2 tbsp mayonaise
  • 1 tbsp each fresh thyme dill and parsley
  • salt and peppe

Instructions

  • Wash and dry all vegetables.
  • Prepare the dip by mixing together sour cream (or plain greek yogurt) with mayonnaise, thyme, dill, parsley, salt and pepper to taste.
  • Transfer the dip to a resealable container and place in fridge for at least 2 hours.
  • Now, to make the wreath start by placing the empty ramekin in the centre of a dinner plate.
  • Chop the broccoli down to small “trees”. Arrange the broccoli around the ramekin. This is the base of the wreath.
  • Cut the cherry tomatoes in half and place around the wreath – these are the Christmas balls.
  • To make the bow. Slice two strips of red pepper - cut the "v" into one end of the pepper...simulating the end of the ribbon. For the bow, use a round cookie cutter to cut out the circular centre of the bow. Use the rounded part of the pepper to cut out the "loops" of the ribbon. I freehanded these pieces, they're based on the size of your centre circle. Place the bow at the bottom of the wreath.
  • Slice the cucumber into thin disks. Use a star shaped cookie cutter to create cucumber stars. Tuck the cucumber stars under the broccoli, creating a festive edge for the wreath.
  • Use the star cookie cutter to cut yellow stars from the yellow pepper and place around the wreath.
  • Cover the entire wreath and place in fridge, until ready to serve.
