Great for entertaining. Basket size does not matter. Any basket will do. Just have fun with this.
The amounts do not matter, you can make this with what you have on hand.
I used, blanched cauliflower, blanched broccoli, a bunch of radishes with the tops left on. Baby carrots with tops left on. cherry tomatoes, cucumber slices, yellow bell pepper slices , celery slices, mushrooms and 1/2 of a cabbage(Take out some of the inner leaves) to hold the dip. Place the cabbage in the basket and work around it.
Buy some Kale or other decorative lettuce and line a basket with the lettuce creating a bed.
Start putting your vegetables in the basket, I like to make it looked like a basket of freshly picked vegetables.
For the dip
1 cup non fat Greek style yogurt
¼ cup mayonaise
1 cucumber, seeded
2 Tbsp. fresh dill
¼ tsp sea salt
Place all ingredients in a blender.
Pour the dressing into the ½ piece of cabbage.
