Kids can help

Assemble the pieces of the salad and sprinkle the coconut.

What you need

  • Green Pear
  • Celery sticks
  • Red Apple
  • Carrot slice
  • Coconut (optional)
  • JuJubee Candies

Cut a slice of pear from one side of the pear and then trim off lengthwise edges to form a tree trunk. Leave peel on. From a slice of the apple, with peel, cut a pot for the tree. Celery stick should be cut into thin strips, making an angled end cut so tree "branches" fit flush with the trunk. Use a carrot slice to make a small bird that will top the tree. Assemble each tree on a plate, using either carrot "ornaments" or little colored JuJubee candies. If using coconut, sprinkle along the bottom edge of the plate for "snow".
