I love preparing fun food – and this isn't the first time I've created a picture with veggies – check out my low carb vegetable Christmas tree! With Halloween approaching I was looking through my low carb Halloween recipes and realized that I didn't have owls!
Creating an owl veggie platter isn't exactly an original idea – but I wanted to ensure that low carb vegetables were used, and that it was served with a delicious dip. And this chipotle ranch is SO good!!!
I recommend making the dip first (scroll down for details) – but here's how I made the owl.

Divide the dip between two bowls or ramekins, and place them on a large serving board where you want the eyes to be. Surround the bowls by fanning out some baby carrots above and to the sides.
Place cucumber slices in an overlapping pattern, starting from the bottom and working up.
Next, place slices of bell pepper to the sides of the cucumber to form wings.
Use some off-cuts of pepper to make a beak, claws, and ear tufts. Add celery sticks as branches and finish with black olives for the eyes!
