Recipe: Creative Crudité
Summary: Making a crudité is like doing a flower arrangement. Think groupings. Presentation Presentation Presentation!
- 1 large head cabbage
- carrot sticks
- red bell peppers
- orange bell peppers
- yellow bell peppers
- 16 oz. sour cream
- Lipton’s Onion Soup Mix
- First, peel back the large outer leaves of the cabbage. Then cut out a circle from the top and use a melon baller to hollow it out. Lay the outer leaves on your platter and place hollow cabbage in the center.
- Slice and place celery with celery. Carrots with carrots.etc
- For the container, I used one of my favorite French porcelain baskets. The dip is a classic 1950s recipe my grandmother Dottie taught me. It’s complex, so get your pen out. Ready?
- Sour cream, together with Lipton Onion Soup Mix. How easy is that? Sure, you could spend hours doing a dip from scratch, and when I was in culinary school, believe me, I did. But sometimes, you just can’t beat the convenience (and taste!) of Lipton’s. With a beautiful presentation, who’d know the difference?
