When I was hosting my good friend, Karla, who has 11 children , I knew I would want something easy for all our combined 19 kids  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 . 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
- Squirt ranch dressing in bottom of small cup.
- Add carrots, celery, sliced bell pepper, and grape tomatoes.
- Slice cucumbers and make a slit half way across each slice.
- Place cucumber, at slit, on edge of cup.
And here's the simple refreshing spa water  I like to have on hand for large crowds. I love this 3 gallon dispenser!
Here's another variation I made, at my husband 's request. This one has sliced lemons (1), limes(2), and oranges(3).
