Pretty little Christmas tree made out of homemade cheese dip/spread coated with chopped parsley to make it green, and decorated with cherry tomatoes, pimiento stuffed green olives, cheese stars and lemon peel for "garland". Serve with stacks of crackers around the tree as "presents". Makes a GREAT centerpiece!
