Crudite (as your Side Dish)

prepared by and photo by Emily S. Downs

Something I serve 5 out of 7 evenings to my family.  A friend of mine inspired me to do so, after I noticed she was serving cut-up vegetables with a side of ranch dressing to her two daughters, nightly.  They weren’t big on vegetables to begin with (as most kids aren’t), so her strategy was to serve a small variety and have them eat a certain amount along with their main dish.  Dipping the veggies into the ranch dressing made the eating experience a little more fun, as well as hide any undesirable flavors…

Size: up to you!

Ingredients:
Personal selection of fresh vegetables...
