  • 16 oz (454 g) plain hummus (store-bought or homemade)
  • 1 can (6 oz) large pitted black olives, divided
  • 30 cherry or grape tomatoes, divided
  • 3 large red bell peppers, cut into strips, reserving 1/2 top of a pepper
  • 1 container (8 oz or 227 g) mini mozzarella balls, drained and patted dry
  • 2 bags (12 oz or 336 g) cauliflower florets
  • 1 bag (12 oz or 336 g broccoli florets
  • club crackers


  • Evenly spread hummus onto a round white plate with a lip around the edge. Place plate in the center of a 20 x 13 - inch board (51 x 33 cm).
  • Press two olives for Santa's eyes, a tomato for his nose and the 1/2 top of a bell pepper for his smile onto the hummus.
  • Layer red bell pepper strips, starting from the top of the plate up to the top-right corner of the board to look like Santa's hat.
  • Add a row of mini mozzarella balls (regular size works too) to the top edge of the plate and a small pile of mozzarella balls to decorate the top of Santa's hat.
  • Arrange the cauliflower for Santa's beard, mustache and eyebrows.
  • Place remaining black olives, except for one, at the bottom of the board, around the cauliflower beard to look like Santa's belt. Stack 1-3 club crackers at the very bottom center of the board with the remaining olive cut in half and the halves pressed together in the center of the cracker to resemble Santa's belt buckle.
  • Divide the remaining tomatoes on either side of Santa's cauliflower beard, filling in from the olives up to the middle of the board.
  • Add the broccoli to the top left of the board and fan the club crackers along the right side of the board.
