Make Your Party Appetizer Ahead Of Time
Stress-free entertaining is all about planning ahead of time. Party appetizers don’t have to be complicated or fancy. Everyone loves a great dip recipe. You can make this vegetable dip recipe 24 hours before hand and let it chill in the refrigerator. The more cold it is, the better it tastes!
I serve my vegetable dip with chopped celery, mini carrots and grape tomatoes. You want to add as much color as possible. Raw broccoli and cauliflower works as well.
Don’t be afraid to add some crackers to your platter too. Some people want a little more crunch and a hearty cracker works great. The dip lasts for a week – just be sure to keep it over ice when you’re serving it.
