Veggie Turkey Platter and Dip

Veggie Turkey Platter and Dip

That’s right. This is a turkey made out of vegetables. And this one was made by Trish. She can’t resist a cute dish, which is why she married me (or is it because she has a fondness for turkeys?)

But enough of that nonsense. Here’s the easy-to-assemble (no-cooking required recipe). (Note: Trish didn’t have any red peppers so she left them out, but I included them in the recipe below. )

(To show my appreciation for you putting up with my lame jokes, I’m giving you this free eCookbook with “9 Recipes to Help You Relax and Enjoy the Holidays,”  along with free subscription to the Rootsliving newsletter. I promise, the cookbook contains no feeble attempts at humor. Happy Thanksgiving!)
