Begin with a 16" round tray. I chose to build my St. Patrick's Day Board in a rustic wood barrel. Line your tray with a piece of food grade paper.
Step 1: Place 4 large leaf lettuce at the bottom of your tray. This will set as the green landscape that Ireland is known for.
Step 2: Cut the top off of a green pepper and clean out. Place as shown, this will be your pot for the gold.
Step 3: Cluster white yogurt pretzels to create a cloud look, opposite from the green pepper.
Creating the Rainbow!
Step 4: Following the curve of your tray, begin with creating 3 rows of strawberry halves.
Step 5: Follow the curve of the strawberries, working inward, with orange slices.
Step 6: Follow the curve of oranges, place mango squares in a curve.
Step 7: Then add kiwifruit slices.
Step 8: Finish your rainbow with a row of blueberries.
Step 9: Create shamrocks with broccoli. See instructions below.
Take 1 broccoli, keeping the stem about 1 1/2" in length. Then add 2 short broccoli clusters and place on either side of the longer broccoli to make a 3 leaf clover. Repeat to make 2 more and place as shown.
Step 8: The green fields of Ireland are created with celery sticks.
Step 9: Fill the green pepper with original hummus.
Step 10: Fill your pot of gold with gold nuggets - chickpeas!
