Spring Crudité Platter:

I don’t know about you but I get so excited for spring. Especially all the delicious and fresh spring produce you can find at the farmers market. And one way I like to enjoy all the fresh spring produce is in a loaded crudité platter. And it is a great option if you are entertaining or need something to bring to your spring festivities.

Items you will need:

Feel free to use any seasonal produce you have available to you. But here is a list of what I added to my platter.

  1. Beet Hummus
  2. Cilantro Greek hummus
  3. Guacamole
  4. Snap peas
  5. Rainbow carrots
  6. Blanched asparagus
  7. Rainbow cauliflower
  8. Blanched green beans
  9. Radishes
  10. Mini bell peppers
  11. Cherry tomatoes
  12. Persian cucumbers
  13. Celery

Preparing the homemade hummus:

One of the easiest things to make at home is homemade hummus. But if you are in a time crunch, feel free to pick up your favorite store bought hummus. Simply add all the ingredients for each hummus (separately) in a food processor, and process until you get a smooth and creamy consistency. And the nice thing about making it from scratch you can tailor the flavors to your liking. I made a roasted beet hummus and Cilantro Greek Hummus, which are both picky eater approved.

Making the guacamole:

I personally love dipping veggies in guacamole. And so there will always be guacamole on my veggie platter. And I keep mine simple. Avocado, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and juice of 1/2 a lime, mix it all up, and enjoy. And you could also serve a side of crackers, pita bread, or chips to go with this platter and all the dips too.

Creating the platter:

And the fun part about creating the platter is there are no rules! But I do like to start by adding my bowls with the hummus and guacamole. And work around those dishes by adding all the different fresh produce. And I do keep in mind the color combinations and try to mix and match the colors I use, to make it look extra vibrant, and colorful.
