Prep your fruit and veggies by washing and cutting into appropriate shapes and sizes
Gather a board to assemble your crudite on, as well as small bowls and spoons for dips
Begin by assembling the dips on the board, in a random pattern so that guests can reach to a dip no matter where they are sitting
Now add all the fresh veggies and fruit, keeping in mind to spread out colors and textures so that the board looks colorful and well balanced
Add in nuts, dried fruit and any other type of sweet or savory snack items to nibble on
Lastly, add in the chips and/or crackers at the very end, as to avoid getting stale or soggy. Enjoy!
Veggies may be cut and prepared up to a day ahead.To freshen up veggies that may have dried out a bit when prepped ahead, simply place in a shallow water bath for a minute, then pat dry.When choosing dips, focus on purchasing those made with whole ingredients, and are well balanced between heathy fats, legumes and nuts.
