16 Drop-Dead Gorgeous Crudités Platters

What if you didn’t have to worry about making four different appetizers for your next party—just one that’ll knock everyone’s socks off? Look no further than these breathtaking crudités platters. They’re basically just artfully sliced veggies, dips and sometimes (if we’re extra lucky) cheese. Better yet, you can slice and arrange the vegetables a few hours ahead of time and cover them in damp paper towels to keep everything perky until your guests arrive.
