It’s a work of art that requires almost no cooking. Well, actually it requires zero stove time – just a few prep minutes, a whirl in the food processor and then voila! The key is to keep everything fresh and colorful. As you’re well aware, I’m really into “piles” of food. Piles of radishes. Green beans. Celery. Carrots. You name it, you can put it in a little pile and then plop the dips on the board and you’re ready to rock and roll.

Mix and match various veggies with either dip and your snack / appetizer board is done. I’m all about a creamy hummus topped with a drizzle of olive oil and some paprika alongside a freshly made tzatziki loaded with dill, cucumbers and green yogurt! Try your hand at it and send me pictures on instagram or snapchat!!
