Ingredients

  • 2 ripe avocados, pitted
  • juice of 1/2 a lime
  • pinch of kosher salt
  • 1 bag Bolthouse Farms matchstick carrots
  • 1 Bolthouse Farms large carrot, peeled
  • 1 persian cucumber
  • 4 cherry tomatoes
  • 8 breakfast or red radishes, sliced in half
  • 8 sugar snap peas
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 celery stalk
  • 1/2 cup broccoli florets
  • 4 wooden skewers, cut in half
  • 4 small plastic cups

Preparation

1. Spoon the avocado flesh into a bowl along with the lime juice and salt. Use a fork to mash the avocado until smooth.

2. Fill each small plastic cup about 1/2 way up with Bolthouse Farms matchstick carrots.

3. Spoon 1/4 of the avocado mixture on top of the matchstick carrots in each cup.

4. Cut the carrots and cucumbers into 2 inch lengths. Use a pairing knife to make 4-5 small notches around the carrot and cucumber pieces. Then slice each one into 1/2 inch slices to form flowers.

5. Place the carrot flowers and cucumber flowers onto wooden skewers. Top the cucumber flowers with cherry tomatoes.

6. Cut the red bell pepper and the celery into sticks about the same length as the sugar snap peas.

7. Place the carrot and cucumber flowers, sliced radishes, sugar snap peas, red bell peppers, and celery into the avocado mixture to create a garden.

8. Then place the broccoli florets in the open spaces to create grass.
