Recipe Tips For Suceess
Making this simple dip recipe could not be more simple to prepare. Here are some pro tips for success.
- Wash. Wash and dry vegetables before using. Run gently under water and let air dry or gently pat dry with a paper towel.
- Cut Vegetables. Cut vegetables into different shapes for variety as they are arranged around the bowl of dip. The carrots look great as sticks and I like to cut the cucumber into rounds or halves.
- Arrange Vegetables In Groups. When arranging the vegetables around the dip think of it like an art project. I put the vegetable varieties together in groups but trying to group different shapes and colors together.
How To Serve Veggie Dip
Serve vegetable dip in the center of a large serving tray with cut/sliced vegetables of your choice. Dip should be served cold. Serve at parties of any occasion where finger foods are being served. If I am hosting a larger party, I like to double the recipe so I can bring out another bowl if needed.
- Refrigerator. Store any leftover dip in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days.
- Re-serve. To re-serve veggie dip, remove from refrigerator and serve with your favorite vegetables.
- Freezing Instructions. I don’t recommend freezing the dip as there is some separation during the thawing process.
