    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    Your guests will love this veggie tray! --- plan ahead the dip *must* be chilled for at least 3 hours or up to 24 hours before serving, the flavors will strongly intensify --- The amounts listed for the of dip is enough for about 6-8 people, I suggest to double or triple the amounts if serving a large crowd, if doubling increase the fresh garlic by only as small amount, I did not list amounts for the veggies choose as much as you want to use and whatever assortment you desire --- the veggie platter may be made well in advance, cover tightly with plastic and refrigerate until ready to serve, you will need a large round serving platter to accommodate all the veggies and the bowl of dip --- now if you really want to take this veggie platter to a whole new level and make it really special place assorted cheeses and deviled eggs around the dip bowl on the platter, see my Kittencal's Best Deviled Eggs

      yummmmmy!! this was a great make ahead addition to my super bowl menu! i loved the flavor of the dip...and so did everyone else! i doubled the recipe and every bit was devoured! i used a whole tub of gorgonzola and added more dill and lots of cracked black pepper. for the veggies, i went with celery, carrots, broccoli, red bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, radishes and pretzel rods! thanks so much for sharing kitten! this is a great addition to any party! (i love anything i can make ahead of time and if it isn't using up my oven, it's even better!!!)
