Take your naked veggies skinny dipping!

Summer is here and fresh vegetables are in abundance.  Before dinner, as a pool side snack or packed up in a picnic basket, ‘naked” veggies are a perfect way to satisfy friends and family when you host. Tomatoes, cucumbers, green, yellow and red peppers, carrots, broccoli, celery – you like it, it works and the more variety the better.

To add something really special to your vegetable plate, try Green Goddess Dressing.  I love it and so do my kids – it gets them dipping and eating their veggies!   Note: I omit the anchovy paste, which is included in the traditional Green Goddess recipe.
