To make this garden-fresh filling, you’ll need: 4 ciliegine mozzarella balls, a handful of baby spinach, 1 tablespoon of pesto, 4 strips of red bell pepper, 4 cucumber batons, 3 halved grape tomatoes and clover sprouts for garnish.
This hearty dip has the works: pepperoni, onions and bell peppers stirred into a thick tomato sauce, all topped with gooey melted cheese. Serve in a skillet and let your guests pile their baguette slices high with toppings, deep-dish style.
Let your kids play Mother Nature by creating flowers and butterflies using fresh fruits and vegetables. To make the flower, spoon plain Greek yogurt into a small bowl, then use fresh fruit like strawberries and blueberries to create petals. Make a colorful butterfly with cucumber slices, bell pepper pieces, raspberries and blueberries.
This kitchen's crisp, clean white design shows just how much a bit of color can make an impact. Aside from the turquoise chairs and red stools and pillows, the addition of lemons and sunflowers provides a cheery, bright yellow that can be changed out by the day — and those sunny-hued things can be functional, too! In the fall, why not try orange bell peppers paired with chrysanthemums?
April showers bring May hummus and crudité flowers. Use individual containers of hummus or spoon hummus into a small prep bowl to serve as the center of the flower. Slice an English cucumber on the diagonal (these are seedless and have thin, edible skin) and top each piece with a bell pepper strip. Make the stem with a celery stalk and leaf and “plant” the flower into a bed of whole-wheat crackers.
