A colorful crudités platter or board is a great appetizer to start any-gathering. Crudités means “raw things” in French, and one typically consists of raw vegetables with dip, but you can also add nuts, olives, fruit, cheese, breadsticks, or crackers to make it a heartier spread. I like to collect as many “mini” vegetables as I can find, in as many colors as possible. Serve it with your favorite dip or dressing or try my Walnut Dip.
On a large platter or cutting board, arrange the vegetables around the dip by color. Other ideas: red radishes, bell pepper slices, broccoli, snap peas, green beans, celery, jicama, asparagus & mandoline-sliced beets.
