Christmas Tree Healthy Snack or Appetizer

 Happy Black Friday! If you aren't out shopping, and over did it on Thanksgiving, this is a great healthy snack that the whole family will love- especially the kids! It is also a great idea to bring to those Christmas parties, if you want something more healthy among all those Christmas cookies.

 I saw this idea in Family Fun Magazine, but they used parsley. I used green leaf lettuce, cherry tomatoes, and cheese. Cut your cheese into little cubes or squares. Lay out your lettuce to form a tree shape- I used 2 leafs of lettuce. Lay everything out on a tray to form a tree.
I added a star to mine- with a cookie cutter I cut a small star from cheese- of course this was the part all the kids wanted to eat.  This was fun, simple, and easy to do, and my kids ate it all up.
Happy Holiday Season!
