This is a coral reef veggie tray that I created for my granddaughter's mermaid birthday party. I created the "sand" from two blocks of cream cheese mixed with a packet of ranch dip mix. I stood carrots and snap peas on end and then cut celery several times lengthwise to make celery fans. Small sweet peppers became rocks and smooth coral. Broccoli and several colors of cauliflower became coral. This was easy and fun to make and a real hit at the party.
