Crudites with Roasted Red Pepper Buttermilk Dip make the perfect addition to any menu when entertaining.
So easy to pull together when entertaining, crudites are always one of my favorite things to include in my entertaining menu. And my favorite way to serve them? With a little bit of a flavorful dip in the base of a small glass with the raw vegetables then standing up in the glass for easy handling during a party.
Not only does it make an easy appetizer to put together, serve, and for guests to enjoy, it also makes for a really pretty display when serving.
I like to use my crudites down the center of my tables in place of using floral arrangements every once in a while. They dress up the table with edibles that guests can enjoy as they arrive or before the meal is served.
It definitely makes for easy entertaining!
