This might be the year I was too busy to get to making palmiers but I have finally made an eatable Christmas tree!
Super simple and fun to make.
If you don’t count the dressing I’m planning to serve with it and don’t count the bacon bits I was thinking would be real nice sprinkled on top, it’s a three ingredient salad.
I saw a this Christmas tree done with cherry tomatoes and I’m sure that would be good too. When I saw the pomegranate I thought they would look like Christmas lights.
I cut a bunch of broccoli florets and a few cauliflower florets and then re-cut them so that each one would stand up when I placed it on the plate.
arranged it in a tree shape on a plate.
Then carefully placed cauliflower pieces between the broccolis.
Last step, I Put the “lights” on the tree.
Broccoli Pomegranate Christmas tree salad
- broccoli florets
- cauliflower florets
- about 1/4 of a pomegranate worth of seeds/berries
Cut broccoli florets flat on the bottom so they’ll stand up and arrange into a tree shape on a plate.
Cut cauliflower florets in half or more as necessary to make a little smaller than the broccoli pieces and arrange a few here and there throughout the tree.
Carefully set pomegranate seeds like strings of Christmas lights on the tree.
