Patriotic Veggie Platter recipe notes:
- You can assemble the platter the night before. Just place aluminum foil over it and be careful when you are transporting it to your party. If anything moves around, you can take a quick minute to fix it back up.
- You can also make the Ranch Dressing up to a couple of days before. Place in a jar, chill in the fridge, make sure you stir it up prior to serving. Don’t forget to serve with flag toothpicks to pick up the veggies and dip!
- You can use a variety of different white veggies if you are not a big fan of cauliflower. Just use jicama sticks and/or peeled, sliced cucumbers.
- If you are looking for more dip recipes, you can also try my Cool Ranch Dip. If you are not dairy free, use any dip you like.
