    Place 2 celery sticks for legs and 2 carrot sticks for arms. Use tomato slice on top to give your doll a head (You can use a scoop of tuna salad for the head, then cut the tomato slice in half and use for shoes). Using your shredded lettuce, give your doll some hair. Finish using raisins to make a face on your tomato slice.

    *Additional Options* To make this dish "boy friendly" for my son, he uses long carrot shavings to make a belt, instead of fanning the lettuce he lays them so they look like legs below the belt. We use the tuna salad to make a soccer ball..he adds the raisins to make the black pattern found on the ball.
