6 Ingredient Christmas Tree Salad Platter

6 Ingredients, Child Friendly & Only Around $20

Christmas Tree Platter Boards seem to be everywhere at the moment... or maybe that's just what instagram's algorithm has decided I might like?

This elaborate looking creation is also super simple. It only has 6 key ingredients - with additional toppings if you want them.

Let's Get Into The Recipe

Key Ingredients

  • 1 Whole Cucumber (or more if you are feeding lots of people)

  • Cherry Tomatoes

  • Capsicum

  • Red Onion

  • Olives

  • Feta (SNOW - crucial ingredient)

Optional Additions

  • Basil/ Oregano/ Rosemary - your favourite Mediterranean Herbs

  • Lemon Star & Slices for dressing

  • Salt & Pepper

  • Olive Oil (for serving)

Method - Read On

Step 1 - Building Your Base

  1. Chop the cucumber and arrange in layers, starting from the top

  2. (I've thrown some basil at this but that's totally optional)

  3. Chop and arrange some red onion tinsel (can't quite believe I'm writing this but here we are...)

Step 2 - Adding Decorations


  1. Cut Cherry Tomatoes in half so that they easily sit in the salad

  2. Choose a mixed box for added colour (same price!)

  3. Add whole ready pitted olives (lazy yes, but a salty and winning hit with the kids....)

  4. Add capsicum 'tinsel' to the tree in the opposite direction to the red onion - seriously so much easier than it sounds.

Step 3 - Finishing Touches

And in my opinion the best part...

  1. Add Feta Snow by simply crumbling it over the top of the tree

Feeling Fancy?

  1. Whilst you've got it out cut some large feta cubes to make presents

  2. Cut a slice of lemon to make a star and chop up the rest of the half to use to dress the salad when you serve it

Stand back and admire your handy work...

Cringe as hell? Sure! A great way to get kids (and big kids) to smile and get excited about veggies... even on Christmas Day - absolutely!

This whole thing took around 15 minutes from start to finish - absolutely winning formula to impress any Christmas visitors without slaving away over a hot stove.
