I absolutely love constructing this festive Christmas Tree Snack Board when guests come over for the holidays. It’s basically a valid excuse to play with your food. There are a few must-have ingredients when I make this, but for the most part, it’s a very forgiving thing to put together and you can really use whatever you’ve got on hand.

The first thing I always like to add are Blue Diamond® Gourmet Almonds from Walmart. I picked up the Garlic, Herb and Olive Oil variety as well as the Pink Himalayan Salt variety. They bring a decadence to this snack board that my friends find to be pretty irresistible, and yet they’re such easy ingredients to toss in.

I love adding Blue Diamond® Almond Nut-Thins® to the mix as well because they go well with almost anything, they’re made from rice flour and almonds (much appreciated by my gluten-free friends), and you can snack on them guilt-free! You can find them right in the salty snack and cracker aisle at Walmart.

From there, it’s kind of a free-for-all. Walmart has absolutely everything I need so this is where it gets fun. I love grabbing a few varieties of olives, and then I just bounce around the produce section. I love using celery for the stem, adding cherries and cherry tomatoes for some festive colors, a bit of rosemary for a green offset, and whatever else looks good at the time!
