If you don’t have time to prep your own platter, try doctoring up a store-bought one. Look for platters with veggies cut freshly in the store (as opposed to a pre-wrapped one the store buys already cut), as they tend to be fresher and look more appealing, Wilson says. He also suggests adding something homemade, such as warm, crispy pita chips. Simply bake pita wedges seasoned with salt, pepper, and olive oil at a 350°F oven until golden brown. A final touch? Providing your own platter. "Transfer the veggies to your own platter... Then add to it, beginning with colors that aren't already represented," Stowell says.
