5-Minute Pumpkin Veggie Tray
Let’s lighten up our Halloween a little, shall we? ✨
I love all the indulgent, sweet treats as much as anyone, but how refreshing to dive into a delicious Halloween-themed veggie platter! If only so you can have another handful of candies, he-he.
There is nothing more fun, quick and easy for your Halloween table – not to mention, healthy! I didn’t expect the kids in the house to devour this as quickly as they did – but boy, was it a hit! They loved the colorful combo of carrots, sweet peppers, cucumbers and a cool, creamy Ranch dip (made with just two ingredients). The dip is so addictive that it makes munching on veggies EASY.
Be a pumpkin and serve this handsome, healthy and FAST veggie jack-o-lantern veggie tray. It makes for an easy snack or party appetizer that everyone will love!
