Recipe by ChefDLH
This is a great recipe for a great presentation for the Christmas. It makes it easy to serve vegetables and dip in a festive way. I use pretzel sticks to make the tree trunk for its authentic bark-like color. Serve as stated or if you choose fill all around the tree with cauliflower and put the ranch dip in a separate dish if you need to refill or keep cold. Definitely a great addition to a Christmas buffet or dinner. Originally from Flo Burtnett in OK, the recipe has a big wow factor. (see my photo) Enjoy! ChefDLH
