This wreath is super easy to make, pretty to look at, and delicious to eat! It would be ideal as part of a selection of appetizers at a Christmas meal, or on a buffet table at a Christmas party or gathering! It's vegetarian too, which is a bonus, and people will feel good about eating some healthy spinach at this time of year!

How to Make a Christmas Wreath Appetizer
Start by loading up baby spinach leaves on a large round plate. I prefer to break off and discard any stalks for a prettier presentation.
Once you have built up several layers, add cherry tomatoes (yellow, red, orange, or a mixture), and mini mozzarella balls (pearls, ciliegine or bocconcini). Finish with a “bow” fashioned from fresh basil leaves.
You could add a dressing over the top but your guests might prefer to add their own. A simple mixture of balsamic vinegar and olive oil would work well – just stay away from sugar-laden commercially- produced balsamic dressings. My low carb blackberry vinaigrette would work really well!Christmas Wreath Appetizer - easy #lowcarb platter for Christmas meals or gatherings Click To Tweet
