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

  1. For the dip; in a food processor combine all ingredients except Tabasco, buttermilk and veggies until smooth (adjusting the processing time for a smooth or semi-chunky texture).
  2. Add in buttermilk, start with 1 tablespoon adding in more until desired consistency is achieved.
  3. Add in Tabasco to taste and adjust ingredients to taste if desired.
  4. Place the dip in a round glass serving bowl; cover and refrigerate for minimum 3 hours.
  5. TO ASSEMBLE; place 1 to 2 lettuce leaves in the center of a extra large serving platter, then place the dip bowl onto the leaves.
  6. Arrange each veggie around the edges of an extra large round serving platter, place bread sticks in between each pile of veggies to separate.

(i love anything i can make ahead of time and if it isn't using up my oven, it's even better!!!)
