24 Days of Christmas – Caprese Wreath

Todays recipe for my 24 Days of Christmas challenge is this Festive Caprese Wreath, which is easy to make and only uses five ingredients. (not including salt and pepper 😁)

This Caprese Wreath is also a pretty way to decorate your table for Christmas lunch, while enjoying a fresh, healthy side dish too.

The best part is probably that it takes only a few minutes to prepare – with no cooking needed.

Enjoy this Caprese Ring with some braaied chicken, or as a stand alone starter.

Happy Chopping!
