This will take a bit of time, but you can buy the cheese already cubed and the it’ll be a breeze. Shape it into a tree, add some organic cherry or grape tomatoes, and finish up with some herbs sprigs. You can use rosemary, dill, basil, or whatever is easier for you to find at your local store.

Or, like you see below, just fold the dough, add a slice of tomato and some seasonings. Soo many possibilities!
