A beautiful Spring Crudite Platter is the perfect no-cook appetizer for a crowd! Loaded with colorful veggies and creamy dips, this grazing platter is the fresh, healthy starter every party needs!

As a commercial food stylist in Chicago, crudité platters are some of my favorite things to create! I love the stunning colors that combine to make a good crudité platter.

Why we love this crudite platter

This fresh and colorful crudite platter is a great alternative to a rich charcuterie board or cheese platter! It’s a great way to utilize seasonal vegetables, and this platter of raw veggies serves as a show-stopping centerpiece for your dinner party table as well!

Asparagus

Radishes – plain or beautiful watermelon radishes are a great addition to any crudité board

Favorite Dips to include on this vegetable crudité platter

Place a couple of these delicious dips in small bowls on the board for dipping those crisp veggies:

Beet Hummus

Tzatziki

Split Pea Hummus

How to arrange this platter

Start with the bowls. Your crudite platter board may include various spreads, hummuses, dressings, or other dips. Starting with the bowls acts as an anchor for the fresh vegetables. Use a variety of sizes to create some interest for your guests. The assortment of vegetables will be built around these items to create an aesthetically pleasing experience for your eyes.

Place the veggies. Fan the sliced vegetables like carrots, cucumbers around the bowls. Fill in the spaces in between the larger vegetables with smaller pieces like cauliflower florets, grape tomatoes, etc.

Add garnishes. Fill in the small spaces that are left with edible flowers or fresh herbs! Don’t forget to garnish the dips as well!
