Preparation time: | Servings: 1
Are you already in Christmas mood? It is quite hard not to be with all the Christmas decorations around. Recently, I was at the shopping center with my daughter and we saw the Santa Claus village already in place with a big message saying he was coming on the 16th of November! What?!? I have an impression that each year Christmas starts earlier, don’t you?
So back home, we talked about Christmas of course and my daughter started to wonder what to write in her letter to Santa Claus. I told her she had still some time to think about it. To keep us in the Christmas mood, we made this edible cucumber Christmas tree as our appetizer for dinner. It was really easy to make and a great fun! My daughter was amazed to see the tree growing and she did all the decoration. I helped her cut the pepper’s dots and she placed them on the cucumber slices. She really was into it as if she was decorating a real Christmas tree:) Now, she can’t wait to do it! Oh, and she also loved these little gifts we placed under our tree, as she LOVES cheese.

Supplies I used
Did you know that the Christmas tree was traditionally decorated with edibles such as apples, nuts or dates? In the 18th century, it began to be illuminated by candles, which with electrification could also be replaced by Christmas lights.
