Crudités Recipe

 

Crudites at Thanksgiving

 

Crudites is another name for vegetable and dip. Be sure to wash your vegetables thoroughly and to use only the freshest for the nicest presentation. You can use as many as you like, but I like to use at least 5 or more. Cut each vegetable into bite sized pieces. You can use fancy cutters if you have them, otherwise, a good paring knife will work fine. You can line a platter with leaf lettuce first for a fancier presentation. Blue cheese dressing or your favorite can be substituted for the Ranch dressing.
