TIP OF THE DAY: 10+ Holiday Garnishes

Many people are so accustomed to the same old parsley or watercress garnish. It’s easy to create special touches can you use for the holidays. The majority can be used with either drinks or dishes of food, savory or sweet.

We like festive red and green garnishes and star shapes. Consider:

  • Carambola (star fruit) slices (it’s greenish yellow; combine with a sprinkle of pomegranate arils for plate garnishes or notch for the rims of glasses)
  • Caviar: green- and red-colored golden whitefish caviar or green and red tobiko (flying fish roe)
  • Champagne grapes or red currants
  • Pomegranate arils on a slice of lime or kiwi
  • Red and green grapes: clusters, threaded, scattered, or on picks
  • Red cherry or grape tomatoes, halved on a cucumber slice or placed on top of baby arugula or spinach
  • Red radish slices atop cucumber slices
  •   Christmas Garnish

  • Rosemary sprigs, plain or stems threaded with whole cranberries
  • Sprinkled dried cranberries and green pistachios
  • Star shapes cut from fruits and vegetables (use a small star cookie cutter)
  • Whole cranberries (thread them with green grapes of popcorn as platter garnishes)
    For Desserts

  • Crushed candy canes
  • Frosted grapes
  • Raspberries or strawberries and mint leaves
