The winter holidays bring about images of sugar plums, cookies, roaring fires, hot, sweet drinks, and friends and family. And more often than not, vegetables are nowhere near the top of that list; however, we may have found a way to alter your perception just a little bit!

This platter is an intricate concoction of delicious, healthy vegetables like carrots, mushrooms, and cucumbers, as well as salty-sour black and green olives. The unique arrangement not only makes the food resemble a Christmas tree, but a decorated one at that, and the only thing you really have to do is wash and chop up a bunch of veggies! Make this ahead for a gathering and serve it with a selection of veggie-friendly dips like ranch dressing, seasoned sour cream, or hummus. Enjoy!
