Just a few ingredients to make a super yummy homemade veggie dip for a veggie tray!
Serve with veggies or on baked potatoes!
- 1 cup Sour Cream
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1/2 tsp dried parsley
- 1/2 tsp dried dill
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- Measure out all the ingredients. Mix all together and enjoy. This dip is best when made the day before. If serving immediately I sometimes pump up the flavor by adding an extra 1/4 teaspoon of all the ingredients except the salt. An extra pinch of salt is enough.

Another way to get kids to eat more healthy food is to make them fun! These clever veggie tray ideas are a great way to serve up vegetables and homemade ranch dip! No need to load up on holiday sweets! Vegetable platters and relish trays are fun for sure!
Turkey Veggie Tray
To make the turkey head slice off the bottom of a bell pepper. Cut a hole in the pepper and slip two strips of yellow bell pepper through the hole. Cut a triangle piece of red pepper for the waddle. Two royal icing eyes finish off the turkey face. Make legs out of long carrot sticks, cutting tiny triangles out at the bottom of the carrot. Place the “turkey legs” into the dip.
Arrange a variety of vegetables like carrot and celery around the bowl of dip to make the body and feathers of the turkey. We like red yellow and green peppers, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, green and black olives, baby carrots, sugar snap peas, and celery. You know the normal items you find on vegetable trays. You only have to include your favorite veggies.
Isn’t that the cutest turkey veggie platter!?! It is almost too cute to eat. Don’t worry it will get gobbled up!
I love this scarecrow perfect for a fall party. It even has oreo crows.
Christmas Veggie TrayS
Broccoli and cherry tomatoes make the perfect Christmas tree veggie tray to serve along with homemade ranch dip. Stacked slices of the yellow bell pepper cut from the bottom of yellow bell pepper make a star for the tree while carrot slices make the perfect tree trunk.
