This Halloween veggie tray is so much fun! It is so quick and easy to make. Plus, it is such a fun tray to bring to parties.
This Halloween veggie tray is so quick and easy to make. It is a super fun dish to bring to a Halloween party, potluck, or to make for kids. It is a wonderful healthy dish to make before all of the Halloween candy and treats.
This vegetable tray goes great with homemade ranch. Some of my favorite ranch recipes are this copycat Popeye’s blackened ranch and this copycat Texas Roadhouse ranch. You could also serve this with this Halloween spinach dip, hummus, or whatever your favorite veggie dip is.
For this pumpkin shaped veggie tray, you will need:
- Baby carrots: You can also use carrot sticks.
- Large black olives: I used a 6 ounce can and I had plenty of leftovers. Make sure you get whole olives and not sliced olives.
- Cucumber: For the teeth.
- Broccoli: To make the stem.
You will need a large round dinner plate or dish. I used a colander to rinse my olives before adding them to the tray.
Rinse your olives well with a colander. This will prevent them from turning the other veggies black.
Add the olives to the plate for the eyes. They don’t have to be perfect, just add a space for them.
Add the carrots around them and then fill in the eyes with more olives.
Add cucumbers cut into triangles for the mouth.
Add an olive nose and broccoli for the pumpkin stem.
- Use red bell pepper for the mouth instead.
- Be sure to rinse your olives well. This will help them from turning the other veggies black.
Can I prepare this ahead of time?
Absolutely. This is a great tray to make ahead of a party. It will stay fresh for two hours at room temperature.
How to store leftovers
Cover any leftovers with plastic storage wrap and keep in your fridge. This vegetable platter will be good for up to three days after making.
