This cheery vegetable Santa salad will brighten up your Christmas feast!

What You'll Need:

Large tomato slices

Green olives with pimentos

Radishes

Cottage cheese

Plates

Knife

It's easy to put a Santa on every plate at Christmas dinner! Wash all vegetables. Cut tomatoes into 1/2-inch-thick slices, one for each Santa. Have an adult help you with the sharp knife! Slice a few green olives. Lay the tomato slice on a plate and add the green olives for Santa's eyes.

Use a radish slice for his nose, and cut a radish half moon for his mouth.

Carefully spoon cottage cheese on and around the tomato for Santa's hair and beard. You can broil the tomato slices in a toaster oven before you begin. Hot or cold, these Santas are delicious!
