This colorful flower box Thanksgiving crudités will be the prettiest, and healthiest, display on your appetizer table! With an array of Autumn veggies, a simple flower box and a little tin foil, this beautiful harvest garden will delight your guests – especially the ones watching their waistlines.
We all know Thanksgiving is for over-indulgence, but it’s always lovely to have a low-carb, healthy alternative to the cheesy, buttery mashed potatoes, cornbread, pumpkin pie and calorie-packed deliciousness we all enjoy later in the evening.
It’s nice to have a Thanksgiving appetizer that won’t fill us up before dinner and looks beautiful too. Let’s create a Thanksgiving Crudités!
First, find a nice flower box that can fit all your veggies. I found my Flower Box on Amazon for just $12.99. It’s perfect for a crudités because it has a removable, washable plastic liner.
Second, wash and chop your veggies. I found all my vegetables at my local farmer’s market. 2 colors of wax beans, red and yellow peppers, tiny multi-colored carrots, yellow squash and 2 colors of cauliflower (because it’s prettier).
Third, make a little divider out of tinfoil. This will help to keep your veggies standing up-right in the box. Otherwise, they’ll just fall over and look a little sloppy. Ideally, use “heavy-duty” tin foil. It will hold them more study in place.
Fourth, place your veggies into the foil dividers, one by one. I started with the carrots and wax beans, then peppers, more beans and squash, then finally the cauliflower.
I served it with a lovely Tzatziki dip. It’s Greek yogurt with cucumbers, garlic, salt, olive oil, dill, mint and a little lemon.
I hope you have a simply beautiful Thanksgiving! For a few more recipe ideas, check out my incredible baked mashed potatoes with roasted garlic and herbed goat cheese or my crispy roasted cauliflower with cheddar and parmesan!
