Prep Time: 30 min.

Let's build a snowman with this festive bocconcini platter. I like to keep it simple and arrange the snowmen on top of a crisp rocket salad, but you can serve them with any salad you like. A tomato, red onion & pomegranate salad, or even a Christmas Caesar salad will work wonderfully. The snowmen also make great appetizers. Just plate them in one long row with a few rosemary twig 'Christmas trees.'
