Simple Summer Veggie Cups

Posted By Smockity Frocks On May 1, 2013 @ 6:02 am In Recipes,Side Dishes | 3 Comments


When I was hosting my good friend, Karla, who has 11 children [2], I knew I would want something easy for all our combined 19 kids [3] to handle for lunch.  I decided to prepare these simple summer snacks ahead of time and set them out on the counter while I was dishing up the taco soup [4]. Everyone was able to easily grab a cup of veggies along with their soup, and there were no worries about little hands spilling the ranch dressing!

These were simple to prepare in just a few quick minutes. Here’s how I did it.

Simple Summer Veggie Cups

  1. Squirt ranch dressing in bottom of small cup.
  2. Add carrots, celery, sliced bell pepper, and grape tomatoes.
  3. Slice cucumbers and make a slit half way across each slice.
  4. Place cucumber, at slit, on edge of cup.


And here’s the simple refreshing spa water [5] I like to have on hand for large crowds. I love this 3 gallon dispenser!

Here’s another variation I made, at my husband [6]‘s request. This one has sliced lemons (1), limes(2), and oranges(3).
