Okay, so you’ve agreed to bring veggies and dip to the potluck . . . but it sound so boring. Here’s how I like to make my platter look more interesting.
The main things to keep in mind are colour and layout. I like to separate the colours, so I this time I started with the green, laying down a few sections of cucumbers and peas. Then I filled the sections in with the other colours. I kept most of the veggies the same length, so they all fit on the platter.
I had some radishes, so I placed them around the centre to make it more interesting, and added a few nasturtiums. Click for links to sites about edible flowers here and here.
I like to make yogurt dips because the veggie platter is supposed to be one of the healthy dishes. I just add some herbs or spices and a touch of salt. My favourite is fresh dill. I keep it chopped up in the freezer so I can just grab a little when I need it. I also like to add a little curry powder to yogurt – really simple!

Hi grreat reading your blog
what were the green & pink veggie slices around the centre?
That was a radish from my garden. It’s called Radish Watermelon, from McKenzie seeds. I don’t love radishes, but they are pretty.
