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.
