If tortilla chips and salsa come to mind when you think of vegan snacks, it might be time for a flavor upgrade. Whether it’s a big party or a small family celebration, you can make any occasion more fun with a platter filled with healthy snacks, just like this one – and with very little effort.
Use whatever you have on hand already to assemble a colorful array of healthy ingredients. The key is variety.
Slice up some crunchy vegetables, and add fresh grapes, raw nuts, and dried fruit. Toss in a few whole-grain crackers, pretzels, or freshly sliced sourdough bread.
If you have them, add in a few olives or pickles, oil-free hummus, and favorite non-dairy cheeses for a presentation that’s sure to get a few oohs and ahhs!
