We started a Thanksgiving tradition a few years ago where we make a turkey veggie tray for one of our Thanksgiving appetizers. I was going through my photos from Thanksgivings past, and found this picture of a turkey made from vegetables. I had totally forgotten about it. You can easily make a turkey shape from any veggies you happen to have on hand. The more colorful, the better.
As you can see, we used baby carrots, red peppers, yellow peppers, green peppers, celery, black olives and cucumbers. It only takes a few minutes to arrange the veggies on the tray and it’s lots of fun to have a Turkey Veggie Platter.

I don’t know what this year’s vegetable turkey will look like yet – but I’ll be sure to take some better photos of it so I can share it next Thanksgiving. It’s an easy tradition that helps encourage my kids to eat their veggies.
So grab a tray or large plate, and use this photo as a guide to help you put together your turkey veggie tray. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
