  • Pour ranch dressing into a bowl; stir in food coloring.

  • Write names onto sticky notes, such as "graveyard weeds" for lettuce, "troll hair" for Cheddar cheese, "gravestones" for croutons, "dragon claws" for almonds, "headless horseman slices" for carrots, "witch eyes" for olives, and "black lagoon slime" for dressing. Label bowls with sticky notes.

Cook's Notes:

Green olives can be substituted for the black olives if desired. Leave green olives whole, and give them a spooky name.

Any variety of white salad dressing can be substituted for the ranch dressing.
