The word crudité originated within the French language and means “raw thing.” This appetizer dish can be made with almost any vegetable, but we strongly suggest preparing it using only the freshest and best looking produce available. Trust us, it makes a big difference as seasonality is the key ingredient here!
The vegetables, whether raw or blanched, should be cut into eye catching shapes. The next best thing in this dish is what the crudités are paired with. Oftentimes, they’re served with one or more dips and they can be served hot or cold. We paired this crudité recipe with a delicious ‘Pepitas dip,’ that we crafted using our Nicaraguan spice blend, Mombacho Café.
The sweetness from the cooked onions, spiciness from the serrano peppers and the freshness of the cilantro compliments the citrusy flavors and depth of the espresso notes of the Mombacho Café perfectly. The roasted Pepitas dip is a low calorie snack, filled with beneficial vitamins, minerals, protein and heart-healthy fats. Alongside fresh, beautifully cut vegetables, this dish is sure to hit the spot on a hot Summer day with health benefits galore.
