Hubby Tony and I attended a potluck luncheon today. After giving my contribution a lot of though, I decided to bring vegetables and dip.
Yesterday I went to the produce market and left with a bag of baby carrots, packages of cherry tomatoes and broccoli, a cucumber, a large red pepper, and a few handfuls of fresh green beans. When I got home I blanched the green beans and broccoli, then seeded the pepper and sliced it into sticks and cut the cucumber on the diagonal. Everything went into the refrigerator until today.
When I went to arrange the vegetables I realized I didn't have anything large enough to hold the amount I bought. The best I could do was an aluminum pan. I knew this would be a pretty informal event, though, so I wasn't too concerned. After I set a plastic deli container in the center of the pan to hold ranch dressing I arranged the vegetables around it.
I think it turned out nice, don't you?
