How to make a Jack O Lantern Veggie Tray
First, place the baby carrots on a large circular tray. You want to use enough carrots so that your tray is covered in the orange carrots as much as possible.
Second, place the sliced cucumbers on top of the carrots to make the shape of a mouth.
Next, you need 2 small bowls and put them where the eyes go. Pour the ranch dip into the small bowls for the eyes.
Now slice 1 celery stalk to use at the center of the top of the tray. This will be the stem for the pumpkin.
Don’t forget the nose. Place the mini bell pepper in the center of the tray for the nose.
It is that simple. Serve and enjoy! You can also refrigerate for up to 4 hours if you want to make it in advance.
