Summer Crudité (Veggie) Platter with Avocado Dip & Salsa

I love making colorful crudité platters as a starter/snack before dinner. The best way of making a veggie platter according to me is by just using all the vegetables and fruits that are in season at the moment. This is such a good alternative to a cheese & charcuterie platter if you want something that is a bit lighter and more fresh. I tend to feel that the classic cheese & charcuterie platters get a bit too heavy during summer, especially if you’re just having them as an appetizer. By making a colorful crudité platter filled with vegetables and fruit you get a light appetizer filled with delicious flavors. For this platter I made a home made tomato salsa and avocado dip to add some spice to it.

  • Carrots in different colors
  • Radish
  • Cucumber
