Ingredients (makes 8)

  • 1 large Lebanese cucumber

  1. Using a peeler or a mandoline set, carefully slice the cucumbers into eight long ribbons.
  2. Slice the cherry tomatoes in half to create the bottom of the trees.
  3. Using the mini star cookie cutter, cut eight stars from the cheese slices. 
  4. Carefully start folding one cucumber ribbon. Begin with small folds then bigger folds until you have created a tree shape. Insert a skewer through the middle. 
  5. Gently separate and arrange the folds to make a Christmas tree shape. 
  6. Push the skewer into a cherry tomato half with the cut side facing down. 
  7. Top the Christmas tree with a cheese star.
