Vegetables and dip have come a long way since the ’80’s when there was nary anything in sight at the average party other than ranch dressing. Not that there’s anything wrong with the creamy, tangy concoction, but a few new flavors (and healthier choices) are all the rage these days.

Point in fact, hummus, a dip made of ground chickpeas, tahini, and other flavorings, is becoming incredibly popular, and this recipe takes full advantage of that fact all while making a vegetable platter with the dip built right in. It’s one-stop snacking, eliminates the need to worry about that lone double-dipper (you know you know one), and is simply adorable to look at! While sweet peppers make for a fantastic, easy-to-work with boat, you can use anything that strike your fancy. Have fun with it, use different flavors of hummus for bigger spreads, and enjoy!
