How to Assemble A Veggie PlatterVeggie platters make it extremely easy to eat your New Year’s resolution-friendly vegetables and enjoy them too. They are a must at family gathering, birthdays , barbeques or just about any occasion. This is my simple go to veggie platter; it’s packed with broccoli, carrots, tomatoes, bell peppers, cucumbers, celery sticks and delicious Marzetti® Veggie Dip.

Marzetti® Veggie Dip are my go to dips for veggies because they are thick, rich and creamy and enhance the freshness and goodness of veggies. They also offer light dips for those watching their weight and they come in a wide range of flavors too. A few of my favorites include the Marzetti® Spicy Avocado Ranch Dip, Marzetti® Light Ranch Veggie Dip, and Marzetti® Southwest Ranch Veggie Dip, but all the other flavors sound amazing too!

How to Assemble A Veggie Platter

Tips to making your own veggie platter:

  • Keep the veggie fresh by washing with cold water and patting dry with paper towel.
  • Shop the day before your event, to make sure you have fresh produce so that way you can throw everything together the day of the event.
  • Arrange the veggies so the same colors are not next to each other (ex: carrots and orange bell pepper) to create an eye pleasing display.
  • Mix things up and use whatever veggies are in season or based on your budget.
  • Serve the veggies with a tasty dip. Like I mentioned above, Marzetti® Veggie Dip is an excellent choice and will enhance the flavor of the veggies.

  • Serve immediately or cover with 2-3 layers of plastic wrap and store in the fridge until ready to serve.


Blanch broccoli in boiling water for 1 minute. This set is optional but highly recommended. Blanching the broccoli will give it a vibrant green color and make it easier to bite on. Be sure not to blanch for more than 1 minute or it will become soggy.
