Cheese and Olive Tree Appetizer
If you’re short on time or don’t like to cook, this is a great appetizer to bring to any holiday party. The cheese and olive tree platter is simple to make and because it’s arranged to look like a Christmas tree, it’s very festive! In fact, our little raccoon couldn’t keep his hands off the cherry tomatoes!
