I like these Veggie cups, because it is an easy & healthy appetizer. Also it suits as a vegetarian appetizer and good to prepare for a party or a small gathering. I used a mustard dip with colourful veggie cups; anyway the sauce can be changed as per the taste. Usually I prepare this for an evening as a healthy snack. Not only the vegetables mentioned in below recipe, I use some other veggies which can be eaten raw.
If it is a party or a gathering, I use small cups to keep the veggies as an individual serving cup, then it is easy to serve and it looks pretty!
Recipe : Veggie Cups with Mustard Dip
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup spicy brown mustard sauce
Salt and ground pepper
1 English cucumber, thinly sliced as sticks
2 red bell peppers cut into strips (remove seeds)
4 medium carrots cut into sticks
Wash and cut/slice veggies accordingly. To keep the veggies look fresh, simply cover the veggies with a damp paper towel and plastic wrap and keep in the fridge till you serve.
In a small bowl, mix mayonnaise, and mustard together.
Season with salt and pepper as per taste.
Serve the dip with bell peppers, cucumber and carrots.
It is really easy!
Serve and enjoy!
If you prepare it as a party appetizer in individual cups,
-put reasonable amount of the dip into each serving cup.
-then insert the veggies and arrange nicely.(as in photos)
