You can slice raw zucchini length wise and spread pesto on each strip and roll. Secure with a toothpick. It looks easy but truthfully, it’s a bit challenging. The strips have to be cut just the right thickness for them to roll properly.

Raw zucchini sticks are easy to cut and still pretty! (Easier to eat too!)

Artichoke Pesto Dip with Zucchini Sticks-0007

I love the raw zucchini with this dip! Zucchini’s mild flavor and goes well with this tangy pesto. No need for extra calories by serving chips or crackers.

Try celery or bell pepper strips for variation.
