What is the best vegan mayo to use?
Vegan mayo widely varies in taste and what one person may like another may not. We highly recommend that if you have a vegan mayo you already like, that you use that.
We personally love Just Mayo; however, it’s almost impossible to find now. Our next favorite that we have personally tried would be Hellman’s Vegan.

How do you make a vegan Turkey Thanksgiving Vegetable Tray?
We started with a round tray about 13 or 14″ in diameter.
Next, we fan some cut celery pieces and baby carrots.
Take a red bell pepper and slice into a bell shape. Essentially, you need to cut 2 long strips and two of the rounded bottom part off.
After that, add all your cut broccoli all over the top of those veggies. Top it with your cherry tomatoes and cut up pepper pieces.
Add your bowl of homemade vegan ranch dip in front of the cucumbers.
Is this Christmas Veggie Tray Wreath Top 8 Allergen Free?
The ranch dressing is the only thing we need to consider for this recipe. Make sure that you use a Top 8 Free dairy free milk. We would go with oat milk for this recipe. And make sure to use a soy free mayo.
Can I prep this Christmas Veggie Tray Wreath ahead?
Once put together, this tray can take up a lot of valuable space in the fridge all put together. Instead, what we would recommend is cutting up all your vegetables the day before and then making the tray itself the day of your get together.
The ranch absolutely does better for sitting a few hours, so totally make that ahead If you have the time.
What other Vegan appetizers could I make for Christmas?
- Nacho Cheese
- Spinach and Artichoke Dip
- Taco Casserole(not a traditional appetizer, but it’s great for dipping with chips)
- Vegan Italian Meatballs – make these bite size for easy finger foods
