Key Ingredients

ingredients for a vegetable holiday wreath

Hummus or dip – Hummus is a great option because it’s universally adored, but any veggie dip works great. For a vegan or dairy-free wreath, use a vegan dip. It’s easy to change the dip to fit a dietary preference or need. You can make your homemade oil-free hummus or cashew hummus ahead of time.

Broccoli – To cut down on prep time, you can buy pre-cut florets. Or you can buy a head of broccoli and cut it up ahead of time. This way all you have to do is assemble come party time.

Cauliflower – Cauliflower can also be found pre-cut in the produce area. The contrast of the green and white in the vegetable wreath makes it pop!

Cherry tomatoes – It wouldn’t be a Christmas wreath without a pop of red. Place the cherry tomatoes in clusters to mimic red berries or flowers.
