Prep Time: 20 minutes    Total Time: 20 minutes    Total Time: 40 minutes


1 recipe Hidden Valley sour cream-based dip (see recipe below)
1 bunch of fresh broccoli
1 head of cauliflower
15 cherry tomatoes

Hidden Valley Sour Cream-Based Dip:

1 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon Hidden Valley Ranch seasoning mix


Prepare the Hidden Valley sour cream-based dip by combining the sour cream and Hidden Valley Ranch seasoning mix in a small bowl. Stir well until the seasoning is fully incorporated. Set the dip aside.

Wash and trim the broccoli and cauliflower. Cut the broccoli into small florets and separate the cauliflower into bite-sized pieces.

Take a large serving platter or a flat plate and arrange the broccoli florets in the shape of a Christmas tree, starting with a wider base and narrowing towards the top.

Fill in the gaps between the broccoli florets with the cauliflower pieces, creating layers to resemble the branches of a tree. Ensure that the tree shape is well-defined and symmetrical.

Place the cherry tomatoes on toothpicks and stick them into the tree, evenly spaced, to resemble colorful ornaments.

Spoon the prepared Hidden Valley sour cream-based dip into a small bowl or ramekin. Place it at the base of the Christmas tree, serving as the tree trunk.

Once everything is arranged, refrigerate the Veggie Christmas Tree until ready to serve. This will help the vegetables stay fresh and crisp.

To serve, simply bring the Veggie Christmas Tree to the table and invite your guests to pluck off the vegetables and dip them into the creamy ranch dip.
