Recipe

– Avocado

– For the base I used carrot

– For the decorations I used red & yellow capsicum (bell pepper), corn, cottage cheese, carrot and red cabbage

– For the skirt of the tree – baby spinach leaves

– For the presents cut Edam cheese

Method

1. Cut the avocado into slices and then build a layered tree shape. Feel free to join pieces together as avocado is very forgiving like that!
