Healthy Veggie Tray Dip

This is less of a recipe and more of a hack to make your own healthier “ranch dip” for veggie trays (or for veggie snacking).

You will need 2 things: Full fat (organic) Greek yogurt and a ranch spice blend. You can also use a “ranch like” spice blend like Sunny Paris Seasoning, Fox Point Seasoning, or Bonnes Herbs.


Mix these together using 1-2 tablespoons of seasoning per cup of yogurt. You can also add a splash of apple cider vinegar to the mix to add a little more of a tangy flavor.

Serve this with all of your favorite veggie slices at parties or snack times. It will be an instant hit!


Antipasto Skewers

These are a party favorite any time of year. They are super easy to make, but are delicious and look fancy. Whenever I bring these to events, they disappear within the first 30 minutes.

There are several different variations on these that you can create. In the featured picture, there are caprice skewers and artichoke antipasto skewers. If you wanted to create another version of these, you could add small pepperoni or cooked sausage slices as well.


  • 1 pint of small tomatoes (cherry, grape, or mini heirloom)
  • 1 jar or marinated artichoke hearts
  • 1 12 oz container of mozzarella balls
  • 1 package of fresh basil
  • 1 package of 4″ wooden skewers


Arrange the ingredients so that it is easy to pick up.

For the caprice skewers, thread one tomato, one basil leaf, and one mozzarella cheese onto a skewer. Repeat until enough skewers are made.

For the artichoke antipasto skewers, thread one tomato, one marinated artichoke hear, and one mozzarella cheese onto the skewer. Repeat until enough skewers are made.
