If you've ever travelled to Japan, you may or may not know that the potato salad here is more like mashed potatoes.
I'm not sure why this is but I have found a new way to put potato salad out on your table for Christmas parties.
All you need is some potato salad, some lettuce and stars cut out of carrots or yellow bell peppers.
Just layer the potato salad between leaves of lettuce, top with a carrot (I used light yellow carrots) or yellow bell pepper star and voila!
You'll have a Christmas tree...fun, yeah?!
When I saw this being done on tv, I wasn't sure as to how big the pieces of lettuce should be, so my leaves were quite large.
I made individual "trees", but think that if you break your lettuce up into smaller bite sized pieces it will be easier to make your potato salad tree.
If you do try this out, let me know what you think.
Merry Christmas everyone!
