Fun Giant Salad Flower

Giant Salad Flower

I’ve had this design in my head for a while just bursting to come out, then finally an opportunity. A friend had invited us to a bring a plate BBQ so crudites and dip seemed perfect.

Here’s my fun food, Giant Salad Flower.

3. Use pieces cut in half to fill in the gaps.

4. And fill the centre with cherry tomatoes (slice the ends off so they don’t roll).
