Prep Time: 30 min.

This snowman bocconcini recipe is the perfect Christmas party dish. Serve it as a side salad, or line up the snowmen to make fun appetizers. Just plate them in one long row with a few rosemary twigs 'Christmas trees.'

I like to keep it simple and arrange the snowmen on top of a crisp arugula salad, but you can serve them with any salad you like. A tomato, red onion, and pomegranate salad or even a Christmas Caesar salad will work wonderfully. 



1. Cut the grape tomatoes in half and slice a bocconcini.

2. Place half a tomato onto a canapé stick and the bocconcini slice to make a hat.

3. Position one bocconcini onto the stick, then a rolled basil leaf (for a scarf), and then another bocconcini.

4. Slice a carrot and cut a small triangle to make the nose.

5. Use chia seeds for the eyes and buttons.

6. Place the arugula on a platter.

7. Dress the salad with olive oil, balsamic glaze and sea salt.

8. Arrange the snowmen sticks on the platter.

9. Top with sea salt and olive oil.

10. Serve.
