Crudités and dip are a no-brainer for any get-together. Combine the fresh-cut veggies with a briny dip packed with olives and herbs, and you’ve got a cocktail party favorite that never gets old.
Game plan: If any of these vegetables are not to your liking, feel free to substitute baby zucchini, bell pepper, or anything else that looks exceptionally good at your market. The dip can be made up to 1 day ahead and refrigerated in an airtight container. For a slacker solution, use precut veggies.
