Easy Scarecrow Veggie Tray and Vegetable Dill Dip Recipe
Each year for Thanksgiving, I love to come up with a new idea for a vegetable tray. Last year, I made a fun scarecrow veggie tray with dill dip, which was a big hit with the kids. It’s hard to beat my turkey vegetable tray, but I thought it turned out pretty cute!
This easy scarecrow vegetable tray idea could be used for any fall gathering or after school snack! I used Wheat Thins for a hat, filled a bowl with dill dip, then created straw hair from carrots, yellow peppers and celery.
You could do all kinds of cute scarecrow faces. I made it easy with cucumbers for eyes and yellow pepper for a mouth, but any type of vegetable would do!
