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.

This recipe was featured as part of our Academy Awards Cocktail Party menu.

  2. 2Add cauliflower to the boiling water and cook until just tender, about 2 minutes. Remove to the baking sheet with the potatoes and let water return to a boil. Add broccoli and cook until just tender, about 2 minutes. Drain and spread in a single layer on the baking sheet with the potatoes and cauliflower.

For the dip:

  1. 1Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and mix until incorporated, then taste and season with freshly ground pepper as needed. Transfer to a serving bowl and serve with raw and blanched vegetables.
