Let your kids play with their food by making this creative snack. Once their flower is in bloom, they can dip the petals in the easy-to-mix ranch dressing!
fresh spinach leaves
1 16-ounce container sour cream
1 tablespoon white vinegar
2 tablespoons minced, fresh parsley
2 tablespoons minced, fresh dill
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (or 1 clove garlic, crushed)
2 tablespoons grated onion (optional)
Salt and pepper, to taste
1.Set out vegetables and let your kids design their own flowers (there is no right or wrong way of doing this). In the photo, radish slices and cucumber rounds were used for petals, cherry tomatoes for flower centers, celery sticks for stems, spinach for leaves, and baby carrots for grass.
2.Ranch Dip: In a small bowl, stir together the sour cream and vinegar until smooth. Add the parsley, dill, garlic powder, onion, if desired, and salt and pepper and stir. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
