Vegetable Bobbers

A simple combination of fresh vegetables makes an irresistible "bobber" garnish, especially when placed of a bed of herb "seaweed". You could also use celery in place of carrots, radishes rather than tomatoes, and zucchini or yellow squash instead of cucumber. Let your imagination—and the bounty of your backyard garden—be your guide.
  • Total Time
    Prep/Total Time: 15 min.
  • Makes
    8 bobbers


  • 8 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 8 cucumber slices (about 1/4 inch thick)
  • 8 carrot sticks (4 inches x 1/4 inch)
  • Fresh dill or tarragon sprigs, optional


  • With a sharp knife, pierce a small hole in the center of tomatoes and cucumbers. Thread two tomato halves and one cucumber slice onto each carrot, forming bobbers (see the photo). Place bobbers alongside fish; add dill or tarragon sprigs for seaweed if desired.

    They are a cute idea and are great with fish but i'm giving it a 3 because they were so hard to make and they are hard to eat

    It added great color! hoever, i couldn't get the tomatoes on the carrot stick, so i put it all on a toothpick and then put carrot pieces at the end. Looks the same, but remember to tell your guests there is a toothpick inside:))
