3 dozen cooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined with tails intact
6 to 8 curly green lettuce leaves
100 toothpicks (or party picks)
1 (9-inch diameter) clean Styrofoam cone
18 cherry tomatoes, chilled
24 pimento-stuffed green olives, chilled
Stir first six ingredients together in a small bowl. Place shrimp in a large resealable plastic bag. Pour dressing mixture over shrimp. Seal and chill for 2 to 3 hours or overnight. To assemble, use lettuce leaves to cover cone, holding in place with toothpicks. Drain shrimp mixture well and discard liquid. Using toothpicks to secure, arrange shrimp, tomatoes, and olives on lettuce to form an edible Christmas tree.
