Whether it’s Halloween or time to start Spring cleaning, this quick and easy snack is a fun way to take a break in the afternoon, and even an easy vegetable side for dinner!

Use standard size carrots (not the baby variety) so that you can get a good size broom, and if your water isn’t cold out of the tap (common during the summer), add a few ice cubes so that the carrots really open up. You can use an English cucumber to avoid peeling, and even opt for super-thin Armenian cucumbers if they’re available, using one whole cucumber per broom stick. Arrange a few dips along with the platter to finish it off: sour cream mixed with rosemary, ranch dressing, or hummus are all fantastic options.
