Fall is definitely the party season around here from holidays and birthdays to football watching parties. Our favorite (and easiest) party appetizer is an easy ranch dip recipe paired with a fun themed veggie tray.
Football Veggie Tray
I’m a fan of creatively arranging fruits and veggies into fun party themed trays. From a turkey or Christmas tree veggie tray to a football fruit tray, it’s easy to get a little creative with cut up fruits and veggies.
Using an oval dish for the red and orange veggies helps keep them in the shape of a football. Top the football shape with strips of jicama for the football laces. Then surround the football with your favorite green veggies.

Easy Ranch Dip Recipe
What do you pair with your football veggie tray? A creamy (and easy) ranch dip of course. I partnered with Shamrock Farms to share my favorite ranch dip recipe. My dad always makes it and it’s delicious. The best part is that is so easy everyone can make it.
How to Make 3 Ingredient Ranch Dip
To make fresh ranch dip, combine 1 cup of Shamrock Farms Buttermilk and 1 cup of mayonnaise with a packet of ranch seasoning. Mix well and then cover. Let the dip chill for at least an hour for best results.
Looking for an even easier ranch dip option? I’m also a fan of combining the ranch seasoning with a 16 oz container of Shamrock Farms Sour Cream.
Shamrock Farms Rockin’ Protein is now the official protein beverage of the Arizona Wildcats and Shamrock Farms is the UA’s official milk partner. To celebrate this, Shamrock Farms is donating up to 50,000 servings of milk to the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona.
When I spent the day at my local food bank, I learned the availability of fresh produce, meat and dairy is not guaranteed. The additional servings of milk will be very appreciated by the families in need.
Next Saturday (11/24) is the annual Duel in the Desert football game between the UofA Wildcats and ASU Sundevils. Shamrock Farms is hosting a Protein Pushup Challenge at the game. For every pushup done within 30 seconds, an additional serving of milk will be donated. You can help!
Simply perform push-ups on your own, capture it on photo or video and post to at least one social media channel (Facebook, Twitter or Instagram) using the hashtag #ProteinPushUpChallenge.
