TIP OF THE DAY: Repurpose Baskets For Crudités

Do you have a nice basket just hanging around—a legacy from a gift basket or flower arrangement?

Repurpose that basket into a crudité server: Fill it with your favorite sliced raw vegetables and whole veggies—baby carrots, cherry tomatoes and radishes, for example—along with the dip.

Vermont Butter & Cheese Creamery, a NIBBLE Top Pick Of The Week, suggests three creamy dips:

  • Quark and Fresh Tarragon Dip with Champagne vinegar and Dijon mustard
  • Mascarpone and Ancho Chili Dip with cilantro, lime juice and molasses
  • Fromage Blanc Greek Dip with cucumber, dill and garlic


Get the recipes.

One dip in the basket is fine and leaves more room for veggies. But it’s always nice to offer veggie-lovers a choice of two. Make one low-calorie, based on nonfat yogurt.
