If a vegetable is sold in a color that it's not typically sold in (read: purple potatoes, multi-colored carrots, orange tomatoes)--I will probably buy it.
It's really just dip and crudites, but the trick is all in the presentation.
Caesar would work, too) is piped into the bottom of a shot glass. You can use a spoon, but a piping bag keeps it neat and prevents it from streaking down the side of the glass.
(I tried it several ways. Trust me on this.)
Then all you have to do is layer in a rainbow of veggies in different colors. I used rainbow carrots, bell peppers, zucchini and roasted purple sweet potatoes for mine. Use whatever you have or love!
Cucumbers, celery, radishes--anything that can be cut into a long-ish spear will work.
