    I made this dish for a birthday barbecue. My eldest daughter is vegan so I made 'cream cheese' with cashew cream, salt, nutritional yeast, olive oil and lemon juice. I could have just purchased a soy based cream cheese substitute but they tend to taste like chemicals to me and my non-vegan family members hate it. Made with my substitute everyone loved this dish and it looks so festive. It will be in my holiday party rotation.

    Have made this the past few years at the holidays. Good to eat, good for you and great reviews by friends. Takes a little time but looks and tastes great.

    Made this using small balls of fresh mozzarella, tossed with a bit of dry ranch dressing mix then sliced in half instead of the cream cheese. Turned out very tasty>

    <p>Very nice however, I arranged the pea pods on the plate then dotted the tips, it was much easier and ensured a nice design.</p>

    Very easy to prepare, but takes a few minutes to design. It looked festive and all comments were positive. I would make it again.
