This veggie tray is super cute and very easy to put together. I used hummus as the dip here, but you can use any kind you like!

  • 1 large plate
  • 4 ounces raw sugar snap peas
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 yellow bell pepper
  • small dipping bowl
  • 14 baby carrots
  • 10 cucumber slices
  • 10 ounces hummus or dip

  1. Clean and dry all the veggies. Place the snap peas around the edge of the plate, fanning them out. Leave the very bottom clear.

  3. Cut off the bottom of the red bell paper and set aside. This will be used at the end for the turkey's face.

  7. Make a ring of the pepper strips on top of the snap peas, alternating the red and the yellow.

  9. Place the small dipping bowl in the lower middle area of the plate. Now fan carrots above it. The bowl will stop the carrots from sliding away.

  18. Thanksgiving Turkey Veggie Tray - place red pepper bottom on the bowl of hummus leaving space to add the feet, glue beak in place using a dab of hummus, place the feet at the bottom, partially in the hummus bowl
