Holiday potlucks are great – until it’s about an hour before and you realize you have nothing to bring. Enter our last minute Christmas veggie trays.
These Christmas veggie trays are great for more than just your work potluck, too. For Christmas dinner, if you’re not hosting you’re often tasked with bringing appetizers or a tray of goodies. We say, don’t just buy some pre-made veggie tray and risk the maltodextrin, MSG, modified food starch, artificial colors and flavors, etc. etc. etc. Forget all those disgusting ingredients in those other veggie trays (mostly, in those dressings that come with them) and old veggies that may or may not have been sitting around or browning. Easier said than done, right?
Nope! We’ve got you covered. These last minute Christmas veggie trays are easy to pull together and about as festive as you can get. We love these unique and last minute Christmas veggie tray ideas – perfect for work potlucks, family dinners, holiday parties, ulgy sweater parties, white elephant parties, and pretty much whatever else you may do this December.
Your friends and family will be totally impressed – especially when you pair it with Toby’s. Who can really be disappointed? (No one!)
Our first favorite last minute Christmas veggie tray is this veggie ornament.
We decided to take a rimmed, circle plate and decorate it with veggies to make it look like a giant ornament. Easy, peasy. Veggies you need: baby carrots, grape tomatoes, and sliced cucumbers. Grab a jar of Toby’s Ranch and watch your beautiful veggie ornament tray disappear.
If you have the space, we suggest decorating the table with a few ornaments and adding a little square piece of paper to give the ornament effect!
This one is my personal favorite. It’s still easy to put together and but adds a few more veggies to the mix and takes just a little more creativity. You could also make this on an oval plate or a square plate and make the hat and beard a little longer. But, the nice thing is that they can both be made on matching plates.
Again, all you’ll need: grape tomatoes, cauliflower florets, baby carrots, and sliced cucumbers. Grab a jar of Toby’s dressing, we suggest Blue Cheese, and serve them up!
