How do I Make Veggie Trays for a Large Group?

Raw vegetable trays are usually prepared as an appetizer, before a sit-down meal or buffet. Plan on six to seven pieces of vegetables, per person, per hour. It's best to err on the side of too much rather than not enough, so add a little extra. Each tray should have a good variation of vegetables to make sure there is something for everyone's taste. Choose five to seven different types of vegetables for each tray.

Skill level:Moderate

Instructions

1 Choose and shop for the vegetables to be prepared for the trays. Even though you may be tempted to include more exotic choices, it's best to stick primarily with well-known vegetables such as carrots, celery, radishes, cauliflower, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers and broccoli.

2 Prepare the vegetables the day of the event or no earlier than the night before. This will ensure that they are fresh.

3 Wash all of the vegetables thoroughly. Place the vegetables on paper towels to soak up most of the water.

4 Line each tray with some type of edible greenery, such as kale, cabbage or lettuce.

5 Peel any vegetables that require it. Slice the vegetables into attractive pieces that can easily be handled and eaten in one or two bites.

6 Arrange sections of individual vegetables together for an appealing display.

7 Cover each tray of vegetables with cling film. Keep them refrigerated until you are ready to serve.

Tips and warnings

Most times, it is expected that you will offer a dip with vegetables. It's nice if individual cups are already prepared.

It is difficult to guess how hungry your guests will be. Always have some extra vegetables cut so you can replenish the trays if needed.

Nice additions to vegetable trays are whole, pitted olives and sliced pickle spears.

If your party will go on for some time, before dinner is served, place the vegetable trays on beds of ice.
