Let’s make a healthy rainbow snack perfect for St. Patrick’s Day!

Let’s make healthy rainbow snack recipe

We were inspired to make this rainbow snack by the arched look of cut pepper slices. They look like a rainbow arch! Peppers come in so many colors, it is the perfect way to make an edible rainbow. I wish I would’ve thought to grab a green bell pepper because I think it would’ve made this healthy snack even more colorful. If your kid doesn’t like peppers, then presenting them in a fun and colorful way might just be the key to get them to try them again. 

This recipe is super simple to whip up after school, and the hummus can even be made ahead of time. This recipe makes a lot of hummus, so you might want to have your favorite chips ready for dipping!
