A few years ago I started making a layered cheese dip that was perfect for the Christmas season because of its colors: red, green, and white. In addition to making an incredibly beautiful presentation with the poinsettia-like flower on top, this was also very delicious and fabulous to make in advance. By layering sun dried tomatoes and fresh basil leaves on the bottom of your mold for this dish, you can create the beautiful flower it is named for.
It would be very easy to change the recipe to include other ingredients. You could substitute roasted peppers for the sun dried tomatoes and create a different flavor profile.
