I love this colorful appetizer because it’s quick and requires no cooking, a few other no cook healthy app ideas are Smoked Salmon Pinwheels, Tuna Deviled Eggs, and Zucchini Carpaccio.

Think color and use your favorite vegetables; raw zucchini or celery would also be great. These are also kid friendly, my daughter loves bell peppers, carrots and cucumbers.

Of course, you can buy store bought dressing to save time, but whipping up a batch of your own is easy. You can make the dip and cut the vegetables ahead of time, then assemble when you are ready to serve it. If you are serving vegans or dairy free diets, swap the ranch dip for hummus!

If you’re heading to a Holiday party and are worried about over-eating, bring these veggie shooters and skip the chips!

  1. I love this ranch recipe! I do use both chives and dill because I enjoy both, and I use less buttermilk. I like to leave it thicker for dipping and add Extra buttermilk if I want it on a salad, but this is the only ranch dip/dressing recipe I will ever use! Warning, at first taste you may think it’s under seasoned,  it let it rest a few hours, the first time I made a mistake of adding extra garlic powder and it was overpowering later. The spices are the perfect quantity and really develop over time!

  2. How long do you think I can save this in the fridge for ? 

  3. I have proper "shooter glasses,Would it be okay to use those instead of "shot glasses?Know are not as wide.

  4. I'm going to make this for my daughter's 1st birthday party next month. I've found plastic shot glasses at PartyCity.com and will use those to hold it. Should be fun!! Thanks for the inspiration!
