Crudités are one of my family’s favorite appetizers to throw together when we entertain or are just craving something healthy. They are also a fun way to introduce new flavors to kids and get them to try different vegetables. My nieces and nephews love dipping fresh vegetables in different dips, especially hummus and tapenade. I love that it takes less than 10 minutes to put together. It’s great as an appetizer or after school snack for the kids!
My favorite is Cedar’s Original. I’ve found it at Sprouts and Whole Foods.
