Valentine’s Veggie Tray

Feb 7, 2019

This healthy Valentine's Day snack is cute and colourful, and it's great way for you and your little ones to get some veggies in before all the chocolate. And remember to save all those pepper, cucumber and tomato leftovers for a salad or omelette!

What You'll Need:

  • peppers
  • cucumber
  • baby tomatoes
  • cutting board
  • knife
  • heart cookie cutters
  • toothpicks

How It's Made:

  1. Cut the pepper into thick strips and push the heart cookie cutter through.
  2. Cut the cucumber into rounds and push the heart cookie cutter through.
  3. Take two tomatoes. Slice a third off each at an angle and skewer together with a toothpick. 
  4. Repeat until your tray is full.
  5. Serve with your favourite dip. We chose a festive-looking beet hummus.
