How to Create a Qukes® Owl Grazing Board!

NOTE: Quantities of ingredients will depend on the size of your platter, but aim for a generous loading!


  • Perfection Fresh Qukes®
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Yellow capsicum
  • Carrots
  • A favourite dip


  1. Find yourself a platter or board and two small bowls or ramekins. Divide the dip evenly between the two bowls and place them on the board. These are going to be your owl’s eyes!
  2. To create an owl body and chest, slice the baby cucumbers lengthways into thick slices or even into wedges, whichever way you prefer. Place these in an oval body shape, the top of the oval being where your two bowls meet together.
  3. Next, add cherry tomatoes to either side of the owl’s oval body.
  4. Slice the yellow capsicum into thin strips and reserve a small piece to make a triangle beak. These strips will become your owl wings. If you can’t get yellow capsicum, green or red capsicum will also work just fine! Place the yellow capsicum strips in a cluster, either side of the owl’s body. YUM.
  5. Now it’s carrot-cutting time! Cut carrots into batons to create your owl’s feathery head, spreading them all around the top of the bowls from one side to the other. Also, add carrot batons to the bottom of your owl’s body to create feet.
  6. You’re almost there! Add a cherry tomato to the centre of each dipping bowl so they look more like owl eyes and don’t forget to attach his yellow capsicum beak!

Now you’re ready to serve your gorgeous edible owl to the kids (or adults who are young at heart ;p). A healthy and mighty delicious, vegetable-filled grazing board. How’s that for a healthy ‘eat the rainbow’ snack idea for a crowd of kids?
