If you want to create a Vegetable Platter for an appetizer or snack, then I have a few tips for you.

Vegetable Platter Tips

Tip #1

When choosing vegetables for your platter, try to choose a variety of vegetables with different colors and textures. Tomatoes, celery, carrots, radishes, jicama sticks, broccoli, cauliflower, and cucumbers.

Tip #2

Don’t be afraid to include fruits or olives in a Vegetable Hummus Platter. Figs, dried apricots, or grapes offer a nice balance of sweetness and can even be dipped into the hummus. Olives are salty and help add flavor to the vegetables.

Tip #3

Be sure to choose veggies that are bite-sized, or slice them into smaller pieces for your Vegetable Platter. Whether you’re serving your platter to family or just for yourself, the idea is to offer finger foods that can be eaten in one bite.

Tip #4

Include hummus with your vegetable tray to add creaminess and heartiness.

Tip #5

Try to seasonal fruits and vegetables on your platter. You can also decorate your platter with some fresh flowers or linens that match the season (such as dark colors for fall and winter and white or pastels in the spring and summer).
