Homemade Dill Dip

A veggie tray is a classic pot luck item, and today I wanted to share how I’ve been serving my veggie trays for the last several years. I’m also sharing a fresh homemade dill dip to replace that yucky bottled ranch dressing that often accompanies a vegetable tray.

If you saw my recent 7 layer dip post, you’ll notice a theme with the individual portioned servings.  I have found this method of serving dips to crowds to be an enormous hit!  It is so convenient to carry your cup of veggies and dip around a party while you mingle, rather than juggle a plate.  Simple place a little dip at the bottom of a cup or mason jar and pile in your veggies.

To these veggie cups I also added some Harvest Snaps. These guys have been a recent fav. I first discovered them at Costco years ago and I loved them! I added a few different flavors of Harvest Snaps to these veggie cups and dill dip for a little extra something.  Guess what?  The Harvest Snaps were the first thing to be devoured when I served this dip.  Seriously the perfect dipper.

Veggie Tray Ingredients

Go crazy with the veggies – choose whatever you love.  I always go with cucumbers, carrots, celery, and zucchini.  For a pop of color and flavor and threaded some grape tomatoes and black olives onto a skewer to include in my mason jar.

Harvest Snaps are snap pea or lentil bean pods that have a hint of flavor and a Big Crunch.  They are gluten free, vegetarian, low carb, high protein, and PERFECT for your pot luck veggie tray.

Homemade All The Way

When it comes to pot lucks I always appreciate a vegetable tray.  With mountains of cookies and brownies and macaroni salads I am so happy to eat something healthy.  When I make a vegetable tray I always skip the store bough prepared one, and make my own.  I feel they always taste fresher and they require only a sharp knife and a cutting board.  So skip the deli veggie tray next time and select some beautiful vegetables from the produce section and create your own tray with these easy homemade dip.  You won’t be disappointed.
