On the weekends, I like to make veggie platters. It's something I started in an effort to jump start our weekend of healthy eating. I find that during the week we eat healthy, since I'm packing sliced fruits and vegetables for lunches, but we slip off the healthy eating wagon on the weekends since it's not already prepared. So taking just a few minutes to slice some crunchy snacks and make them accessible pays off!
Crudite platters are never complete without a good dressing, and Hidden Valley's new Greek Yogurt Salad Dressing and Dip Mixes give us a tasty and healthy option for my dipping family. I took Hidden Valley's Ranch Greek Yogurt Salad Dressing Mix and added a little bit of freshly diced cucumber and mint to make it into a ranch tzatziki Dressing. And to go along with the fresh vegetables, I made a quick batch of baked zucchini fritters.
What I love about grating zucchini is that I can put it into so many dishes that I know my kids will gobble up. These fritters are healthy and delicious, and since they are baked, they are another healthy option for the whole family!
Start by grating the zucchini and sprinkling salt over it in a sieve and letting it sit for about 5-10 minutes; this will help to bring out the moisture. Squeeze the zucchini in a dishcloth to remove the excess water. Then stir in the rest of the ingredients to create a quick batter.
Once the fritters are baked and golden, they go perfectly with the ranch tzatziki dressing and fresh vegetables!
