If you haven't guessed yet, we are all about St. Patrick's Day in this house. We usually celebrate with an all green meal, but this year, I want to go rainbow style! I wanted to help my kids love eating their fruits and veggies this year with these fun and adorable snack trays. They are really easy to make, they just require a little cutting time and refrigeration until you are ready to serve. I have included a list of what I serve on my trays and other ideas in parenthesis below.
Vegetable Tray:Red- Cherry Tomatoes (red peppers)
Orange- Carrots (squash, red peppers)
Yellow- Yellow Peppers (baby corn)
Green- Broccoli and Cucumbers (snap peas)
My Tips: I like to use cherry or grape tomatoes instead of tomato slices so they don't get mushy sitting on the tray. I also think baby carrots hold up better than the larger ones on a tray. To keep the green color of the cucumbers I only peel off some of the peel, leaving a every other one kind of pattern. Wash your veggies and then refrigerate until you are ready to serve.
Red: Strawberries (Raspberries, Pomegranate Seeds, Red Apples)
Orange: Orange Slices
Yellow: Pineapple (Yellow Apples)
Green: Honey Dew Melon (Green Apples)
