Cinco de Mayo Edible Flag

I saw this idea for Cinco de Mayo and thought it was a great way to get in some healthy snacking. Luckily we had to take something to a cook out anyway, and this was our pick.
Jicama- sweet, crunchy and delicious!

Edamame in the shell
Green pepper strips
Jicama, peeled and cut into strips
Red pepper strips
the bottom of a orange pepper

1 pkg. dry ranch dip seasoning
1- 16 oz carton fat free sour cream
pico de gallo
gaucamole (I used what I had leftover from the other day)

Step 1 Arrange edamame, green pepper strips, jicama sticks, and red pepper strips on a platter as shown, then center a green pepper ring and the bottom of an orange pepper on top.

Step 2 Mix together ranch dip and sour cream.
Step 3 Set out your snack with dips in the same festive colors: green guacamole, white ranch dressing, and red salsa or pico de gallo
