Budget-Friendly Crudités

Creating a creative crudités platter can be intimidating if you are trying to stick to a budget and it’s not farmer’s market season.  It’s easy to pick-up everything you need to create a beautiful and tasty crudités platter at your local super market.

The key to a budget friendly vegetable tray is to think about texture and color and splurge on a veggie or two.  For this platter I splurged on the colorful baby carrots.

Another trick I use for sticking to a budget is to shop at BJ’s and buy vegetables I’ll use throughout the week in my platter.

Budget Veggies:
  • Broccoli
  • Cauliflower (if you can find purple cauliflower it looks awesome on the platter)
  • Green Beans
  • Snap Peas or Pea Pods
  • Mini Peppers
  • Cherry or Grape Tomatoes (I love the Wild Wonder™ heirloom baby tomatoes)
  • Radishes (watermelon radishes look great)

  • Cherry or Grape Tomatoes
  • Green Beans
  • Rainbow Radishes
