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!

    We do a recipe close to your veggie shooters but substitute the chives and yellow bell pepper but the taste remains the same – crispy.

  3. Thank you, Gina. I had planned to have some cheese, crackers, salami, etc. for the family to snack on Christmas Day (after brunch and gift opening) and wanted to do some veggies but couldn't think of a way to make them easy and appealing enough that everyone would actually eat some of them.

    I've got those same little glasses from B,B&B, so I'll make these up and everyone can put one on their plate next to the less-than-skinny options. The prospect of lessening the chance of spreading the traditional Christmas colds of some family members is the cherry on top!

    1. On Christmas Day, after opening gifts, I brought out these little glasses with ranch dressing and bright veggies. I placed the glasses on small plates, with more veggies on each plate for additional dipping. They were such a hit, every single person (including the 3-year-old) cleaned up every shred of all those crunchy, colorful vitamins.

      Thank you for such a great idea.

  4. It is so nice , thank you so much for sharing all your great and tasty recipes šŸ™‚

    Oh yes, this is what I'm craving after an overload of sweets…veggies, veggies, veggies. What a fun way to present veggies to kids (and adults).

      I am so with you there! It's not even Christmas, and I am completely burned out on sweets.

    My daughter is having her Junior girl scout friends over on Friday for a little Christmas party. I'll whip this up for them — along with cookies and holiday treats of course. Nice to have a healthy option for them. I'll see how it goes and let you know! I've always made ranch from the package, although tried to make it with Low Fat Hellmann's and Greek yogurt, so now I'm glad to have a homemade version.

    I got them at Bed Bath and Beyond, but I would check a dollar store or just buy a set of shot glasses. Makes a great hostess gift too.

  8. ah, I LOVE this. I may do this for a holiday party I have coming up, where did you get the glasses???
