Fruit + Veggie Trays
Every cookout calls for fruit and veggie platters. For the fruit tray, keep it simple and refreshing! It’s something to graze on while those burgers and skewers are on the grill and when you’re in between swims. Pick a variety of your favorite vibrant fruits and berries, such as strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, watermelon and kiwi!
For the veggies, again, pick your favorites! This one has julienned bell peppers, carrots, cucumbers, and tomatoes. But maybe you like sugar snap peas? Or broccoli? Or celery? Do what sounds good to you!
Now that we’ve covered that, let’s talk about what to dip these veggies in, starting with hummus! It’s great because it’s packed with plant protein and fiber, creating the perfect balance to the complex carbs found in the vegetables. As delicious as hummus is, not everyone feels the same about it. For the non-hummus lovers, how about a Greek Yogurt Dill Veggie Dip! It’s really quite simple: mix together Greek Yogurt, garlic powder, onion powder, dill, salt and pepper. And while we’re at it, a third option is guacamole!! My secret ingredient is to add honeydew to it, shhhh. That touch of sweet completes the flavor profile, making the perfect guac!
