Common Substitutions & PRO Tips for the perfect Veggie and Cheese Board

  • Yogurt: Can’t find low-fat plain yogurt? Use any plain yogurt, but adjust the thickness with a little milk if it’s too thick.
  • Herbs: No fresh herbs? Dried herbs work in a pinch; use 1/3 the amount.
  • PRO Tip: For an extra touch of creativity, use cookie cutters to shape the cheese into Easter-themed designs like eggs or flowers.
  • PRO Tip: Keep the veggies fresh and crisp by preparing them close to serving time, and consider using a spritz of water to keep them lively.

How to prepare Yogurt Ranch Dip

In a mixing bowl, combine all dip ingredients. Whisk by hand until smooth and well combined. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

How to create Veggie And Cheese Board

Create Bunny Ears: For a festive touch, cut out bunny ears from thick slices of sharp white cheddar cheese. Insert the ears into halved toothpicks and attach to Baby Bell cheese discs to create adorable bunnies.

Assemble the Board: Place the dip in the center of your board. Arrange the veggies, crackers, and cheeses around the dip, creatively utilizing the board’s size and shape for an appealing display.
