Crafty Halloween idea: Spooktacular Salad!
Treat hungry trick or treaters to something to tuck into with our creepy skeleton salad bits & dip!
This spooktacular salad is simple to make and is a great healthy treat for hungry trick-or-treaters. Kids can get hands-on arranging the different bones to create their own creepy creature!
- Carrots (we used purple carrots for an extra spooky effect!)
- Large plate or chopping board
- Small bowl
Step 1: Cut up the different components ready to arrange on a plate or chopping board.
Step 2: Start arranging your skeleton. Find a bowl for the head, it’ll be filled with dip later, but it’s great to get an idea of scale for the skeleton’s bones.
Courgettes cut into disks make a great spine, and red peppers are perfect for ribs.
Step 3: Add arms and legs using celery and carrots. Cauliflower and broccoli are a great way of creating hands and feet.
Step 4: Fill your bowl with dip and position as the skeleton’s head.
Step 5: Use cabbage or lettuce leaves for the hair and sliced olives for the skeleton’s eyes. An off-cut from the pepper is perfect as a smiley mouth.
Step 6: Chop up any spare veg and put in a side bowl for everyone to get stuck in!
Tuck into your tasty skeleton! Have a great Halloween and don’t forget to send us a photo!
