Halloween Party Recipe:
Halloween party food doesn’t have to be scary and have no nutritional value. Here’s a simple and spooky recipe for all of your guests to enjoy.
Spread hummus in a thin layer on a spooky serving platter.
Pipe a Greek yogurt or tzatziki sauce spiderweb in the center of the hummus.
Surround the hummus and platter with chopped veggies and sprinkle feta cheese around the edges.
Top with plastic spider rings for the full effect.
Don’t forget the dipping: Use carrot sticks, celery sticks, thin pita chips, fresh pita bread, sliced bell peppers or cucumbers.
Have a Healthy Halloween!
