Turkey Veggie Platter

Some of you may be wondering what you can throw together to take to Thanksgiving dinner.  Here’s a cute idea that you may already have the ingredients for and is sure to steal the show.We aren’t reinventing the wheel…you can find this same idea all over the Internet.  The great part is that you can make it your own with whatever you have in your crisper right now.  Here are the basics of how we did it, but feel free to substitute different veggies that you may have on hand.


  • lettuce
  • carrots
  • cucumbers
  • a variety of peppers
  • celery
  • raisins


Cover your platter with lettuce to make a nice fluffy backdrop for your turkey.  I used carrots and red peppers to make the feathers.  The sliced cucumbers form the body.  The bottom of a pepper makes a nice face.  I used pepper remnants to make the beak and waddle.  I used raisins for eyes, but you could use blueberries, black olives, or anything else that resembles little turkey eyes.
