Fresh veggies are the perfect medium for creating an eye-catching, healthy and delicious snack board. The beauty of this appetizer trend is that there is no right or wrong way to do it. For a fun example, here is how to make a vegetable board using all one color.
We certainly had fun with this board, sticking with a green theme. But as noted, you don’t have to limit yourself when creating your own vegetable board.
On our board we placed:
- Green apples
- Fresh peas
- Green pepper
- Sweet Pea, Lemon and Parmesan Dip
- Sliced baguette
Another name for this would be a crudité board, with crudité simply meaning raw vegetables.
Other Vegetables to Use

- Blanched asparagus
- Red or yellow pepper slices
- Blanched fresh green beans
- Cauliflower florets
- Carrot sticks
- Celery sticks
- Spring onions
- Cherry tomatoes
Honestly the options are endless here. Just make sure that whatever you’re presenting is cut down to size for easy snacking and dipping.
