Arranging food in a festive design is a simple and effective way to theme a dish for the holidays. A simple Christmas tree arrangement for crudités makes this dish fun and perfect for entertaining.



  1. Add the ranch dressing and basil to a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth and green. Transfer to a serving bowl and dot the pimentos on the top.
  2. To make the crudités tree, arrange the broccoli in the shape of a Christmas tree, with the celery batons at the base to represent the trunk. Use the red pepper slices as garlands, the yellow pepper as the star and the tomatoes as the ornaments. Serve with the ranch and basil sauce as a dip.
