How to Assemble Your Vegetable
Full steps for this are in the printable card at the bottom of the post. This is a visual walk-through to see how to assemble your vegetable basket.
The first step is prepping your veggies and cutting to around 4-6″ and place in piles for each variety of produce.
If you have a really deep basket you can place a bowl or paper towels or even grocery bags in the bottom, and then leave about 3 inches at the top for the vegetables to fit in nicely. Place paper towels on top or a foam board.
Then start setting veggies in the basket starting at the back. Then work your way up, mixing the colors throughout, which adds dimension.
Place parsley or other herbs throughout to help fill out the basket. Then serve with dip.
Can I Make This Basket In Advance?
Since you prep the produce you will find it needs to be used and eaten shortly after you assemble the basket. It is mainly for a nice way to serve up veggies for a change at Easter or gift someone. Just of course all vegetable once sliced and prepped need refrigeration.
