I think this is totally brilliant too, but I sort of stole the idea. I was at a small retail store that was just opening and they had some nibbles out for people to eat while they shopped. I was completely enamored by their veggie tray because it was so pretty and became a make shift conversation starter!
That being said, this was more than 20 years ago...and I haven't seen a veggie tray made like this since then...like anywhere.
So, since I have been making my veggie trays like this for the past 20 years, I am going to claim it as my own (same concept as squatters rights...if you wait long enough, something that is not yours becomes yours).
I'll make you all a deal: let me share this idea with you and you can all completely claim this idea as your own. Just send me a line when everyone tells you how smart you are.
You're welcome for that little boost of confidence...
So, pick up the phone and call some people over for a get together.
Just serve this.
They will think you are brilliant...it will be between me and you, honest!
