  • 1 oz. cheese, sliced
  • 1/2 cup carrots and celery sticks (you can sub sugar snap peas, sliced colored peppers, zucchini, asparagus…)

Directions:

  1. In a small bowl whisk all ranch dressing ingredients, then place it into a 1 oz. lidded container.

  3. You may want to wrap the crackers in plastic wrap, or wax paper if you’re keeping these refrigerated for several days, to keep crackers from the moisture.
