Why You’ll Love These Holiday Veggie Trays
These trays are great for snacking during the holidays before the big feast! They are easy to make, even your kids can help you put them together! These veggie trays are the perfect healthy addition to your office holiday party, family get-together, or really just something to get your loved ones in the healthy holiday snacking spirit!
My family friend, [Mrs. L], was the one who really inspired me to find the best holiday veggie trays AND act on making a few myself these past holiday seasons. Mrs. L. also let me know that having a veggie platter with healthier dips before a heavy Thanksgiving meal helped her fill up on the good stuff before the main event.
Tips for Making the Best Holiday Veggie Trays
- Use what you have! If you see in these photos that you may not have the same vegetables, try to use whatever veggies you already have to start and buy else whatever you need.
- Make it fun! Have your kids help! They can even make their own mini veggie trays. (Kids are more likely to eat the food they help prepare)
- Try to put out the veggie tray at the last minute, no one likes warm veggies. Put it back in the fridge to get temperature safe after 2 hours max.
After perusing my Pinterest page and looking for the best holiday veggie trays, these are my top 7 favorites! And I know the four tops will happily scoop the dip if nothing else.
