EGGciting Crudite

One staple of our Easter menu is the crudite.  Veggies and dip. Boring, right?  So this year, I decided to make it EGGciting.  Check it out!  This is so simple even I, Middlesister, can do it.  As far as I know, I invented it. Luckily my youngest brought home this cute little bunny egg to decorate my tray.  Enjoy!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 Egg shaped Honeydew Melon
  • 1 Bag Skewers
  • 1 Small Container Non Fat Plain Yogurt
  • 1 Bag Green Onion or Green Chile Dry Dip
  • 1 Bag Baby carrots
  • 1 Zucchini
  • 1 Can Black Olives
  • 1 Jar Green Olives
  • 5-10 Scallions or Long Green Onions
  • 3 Bellpeppers
  • 1 Yellow Squash
  • 1 Bag Cherry Tomatoes

First, cut a small slice off the bottom of the Honeydew to make it sit flat.  Next, carve a hole in the middle of your honeydew, just big enough for a ramekin to fit in.  Place your honeydew on your serving tray, if desired.  Clean and cut all the vegetables.  You can use any vegetables you like, but I have chosen these.  Make sure to keep them thick enough so that they can handle the skewering.  Skewer the vegetables.  Poke holes with an empty skewer around the honeydew and then place your skewered vegetables into the holes.  I sprinkled the carrots around because they were difficult to skewer, but are a necessary on our crudite.

For the dip, follow the package directions.  I used non-fat plain yogurt since I am dieting this year, but you can use cream cheese or sour cream with most packaged dips.  Hope you enjoy your EGGciting crudite!
