This post is a bit on the unusual side, I’ll admit. This fruit & veggie appetizer was concocted for my friend’s going-away party. He has a mohawk, which he’s rather known for, so I decided to make an appetizer to show how much we’ll miss him (and his mohawk)…
12 skewers, 6 toothpicks, 1 cucumber, 1 bag mini carrots, 1 red pepper, 1 block cheese (I used cheddar, but I’d recommend something softer), grapes, 1 watermelon, veggie dip & a large tray
As I mentioned above, cheddar is good, but the skewers split the cubes…I’d use a softer cheese, like Muenster.
I got 2 out of each toothpick- you need 11 2mm points.
Stick the toothpick point through both ends of a mini carrot, all the way through, so the flat end is hardly seen. Do the same for the cucumbers & the peppers.
Carefully stick the toothpicked cucmber, carrot and pepper in the watermelon.
Voila- you have a nose, eyes and a mouth…as you can see below, I added part of a pepper for a tongue sticking out!
After the face is stuck on, add the skewers of cheese & grapes.
Serve, laugh, enjoy!
