If there’s one thing I’ve learned as a parent it’s that sometimes it takes a bit of hocus-pocus to get your little ones to eat healthy. This is especially true on a night like Halloween when they’re only thinking about one thing: buckets full of candy!

But, no need to fear! We’ve conjured up the perfect disguise for crunchy crudité: a creepy green witch.

Whether you’re looking for a themed appetizer to serve at a Halloween party or want to load your little ghosts and goblins up with good-for-you veggies for dinner before trick-or-treating, this frightfully fun platter has you covered. No one can resist sweet cherry tomatoes, “haunted” purple carrots, refreshing cucumbers and a creamy herb dip.

Best of all, we’re sure that your magical abilities are more than sufficient to make this Halloween veggie tray practically appear out of thin air — no special tools, techniques (or incantations 😉) needed. Just a little bit of slicing and arranging. The dip is a cinch too; toss everything in your food processor and blend until smooth. You can even prep the dip a day ahead to make things simpler on the big night.

Ready to cast a scary-fun spell over your crudité? This recipe will show you how!
