    Vegetable Wreath

    Reinvented Crudités and Dip

    Voilà! Here is our reinvented version of the notorious crudités and dip combo: the seasonal vegetable wreath! Your family, friends, and other guests will surely love this vibrant, colourful, and refreshing dish placed at the center of the table. Plus, it’s a great way to lighten the decadent Holiday menu. For this recipe, we prioritized vegetables that are usually available at this time of the year. However, you can use any vegetables you prefer, whether seasonal or not.

    Here are a few veggie ideas: asparagus, artichokes, Brussels sprouts, bell peppers, carrots, celeries, and fennels. For the more adventurous, try making original shapes with your vegetables. There are even tutorials online to help you create a unique veggie platter at home.

    As for our dip, it tastes similar to the classic ranch one. It is mostly made with plain Greek yogurt (and a very ripe avocado!). Rich in protein and low in fats and sugar, Greek yogurt is a great alternative to mayonnaise and sour cream. 

    Psst! Make the best sandwich ever (here’s how to pimp your sandwich!) and prepare this beautiful vegetable wreath to go with it for a change from the classic crudités!
