I love starting a meal with crudités; I find it to be a wonderful way to elevate seemingly humble vegetables with a super punchy dip. This whipped ricotta, highly seasoned with the black olives, makes the perfect pre-starter.
For the dip
For the Vegetables: Choose Amongst
These vegetables are to be best kept peeled, trimmed and reserved in ice water for up to an hour before serving.
A great accompaniment to the crudités
I like to serve these crudités as a centrepiece to the beginning of a meal, with the fromage blanc in a large bowl surrounded by crudités. You can vary these vegetables according to the seasons, and with any vegetable, a great rule of thumb, the less time they spend between the farm and the table, the better they are.
