  • Wash all vegetables and set aside. Combine sour cream and ranch dip mix and place on the bottom egdge of a large serving plate. Peel and cut cucumbers into spears and cut celery into 4-5" sticks.
    Ingredients for Thanksgiving appetizers
  • Arrange cucumber and celery around 2/3 of the plate in a fan shape. You can arrange alternating each or in sections.
    Arrange so about 1" of the vegetables are hanging off the edge. This gives it a cool effect and allows more room to work with on the tray.
    Note: I like to leave some of the leaves on the celery ribs to make them look more "feathery". This is totally optional.
    Celery and cut cucumber on a plate
  • Place carrots directly over top of the celery and cucumbers, then place sugar snap peas below the carrots so they are slightly overlapping.
    More vegetables added to the plate for a turkey veggie tray
  • Arrange broccoli and cauliflower tightly around the dip container, then fill in the remaining space between the cauliflower and snap peas with cherry tomatoes.
    Spread of vegetables fanned out on a tray
  • Cut the bottom off of one of the bell peppers to make the turkey "face" and place at the top of the dip container. Add confectionary eyes (found in the cake decorating section of the grocery store). Cut off the tip of a baby carrot and cut our a wedge forming the mouth.
    Pepper cut to look like a turkey face
  • Use remaining pepper to make the top of the wings. Slice the rest of the peppers and arrange over the "fan" between the tomatoes and smap peas.
    Use remaining carrots to make wings and arrange beneath the plate to make the "breats feathers".
