Hummus & Veggie Santa Platter

  • Servings: 12
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print


  • 1 container (17 ounces) hummus (I used Sabra)
  • 1 medium head cauliflower, broken into florets
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes
  • 2 small red peppers, thinly sliced
  • 1 small green pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 string cheese, cut
  • 2 pieces of candy (for eyes – I used skittles. You can also use olives, but I didn’t have any on hand)


  1. For Santa’s face, spread hummus in a circle on a large platter.
  2. Next, make Santa’s hat by placing peppers and tomatoes in the shape of a stocking-cap at the top of the hummus circle. At the end of his hat, place several cauliflower florets to create a pom-pom.
  3. To make Santa’s beard, place more cauliflower florets at the bottom of the hummus circle.
  4. To make Santa’s face, use candy for the eyes, one tomato in the center of hummus circle for his nose and a red pepper for his mouth.
  5. Cut string cheese in half lengthwise, then cut in half crosswise; use two cheese pieces for eyebrows and two for a mustache.
  6. Refrigerate until serving. Serve with additional cauliflower, tomatoes and pepper slices for dipping. Enjoy!
