3 Ways To Make A Veggie Platter Less Boring
Crudités are the boring, oft-ignored platters that most hosts put out on the holiday table because they feel like they should (and then end up tossing later). It’s a shame, because they’re also often the healthiest offering amid cheese boards and desserts of all stripes and could help add some balance to your party noshing.

But it doesn’t have to be that way, she says. The key to making crudités sexy is paying special attention to vegetable selection, arrangement, and pairings. And there’s good news. “The silver lining is that the bar for great crudités is now really low,” she reasons.
