I love just about any extra fresh veggies dipped in ranch dip as a snack or appetizer. Just get sour cream and a package of Good Seasons dry ranch dip mix. I just put the amount of sour cream I'll need in a small bowl and stir in the seasoning mix to taste. Whatever seasoning you don't use will stay good for a super long time at long as you fold up the top and clip it closed.
