Reslish Tray / Veggie Tray

We don't eat a lot of cooked veggies. We really don't care for them very much. To make up for that, I try to keep a relish tray (veggie tray) made up and in the fridge to put on the table with supper each night. I know many people use many different things for their relish trays, this is how I make ours.

Relish Tray (clockwise from top)

  • Jicama ~ [hick-ah-mah] it is like a cross between a potato and an apple without all the starch and carbs ~ diabetic friendly and oh soo good!
  • Grape Tomatoes
  • Cauliflower
  • Celery
  • Carrots ~ baby (cut in half lengthwise) matchstick (Blue Girl has braces and can't eat the baby carrots)
  • Cucumber (center)

To store:

I keep mine in a Tupperware that serves both as a storage and can be used for service.

Place a dampened paper towel over the top of the veggies and snap the top on the container.

Place in fridge. It will keep for up to a week like this. Veggies stay crisp and as long as the paper towel is not too moist, will not mold.
