How to Create a Beautiful Crudites Platter for the Holidays

In Recipes | Delicious and Quick Recipes for Real Food by Lisa Soldo-Johnson2 Comments

1. Choose your platter or tray.

2. Lay out your greens.

3.  Begin to layer the ingredients starting with a variety of cheese laid in piles on the platter.

4. Add a variety of crackers, curving them towards the center.

5. Continue to layer by adding vegetables and a few small bowl of olives, pickles and dip.

6. Finish your Crudites Platter by filling in the empty spaces with additional vegetable, fruit, nuts, radishes, cranberries, or your choice of ingredient.  Make it colorful by using brightly colored vegetable and fruited to offset the earth tones of the crackers, nuts, and other subtle ingredients.

7. Cover and keep cool until you are ready to serve it.

Enjoy and Happy Holidays!

      Hi Jan,
      One of my favorite healthy veggie dip recipes is made with Greek Yogurt. It’s very refreshing and packed with gut-healing probiotics! However, you can also use any store-bought dip you like or give this recipe a try!

      1 cup greek yogurt
      ½ teaspoon garlic powder
      ½ teaspoon onion powder
      1/4 teaspoon dried dill
      1/4 teaspoon salt
      1/8 teaspoon pepper
      1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
      1/2 teaspoon dried basil

      Combine in a serving bowl and refrigerate until ready to serve.
