•••Sure, you could pick up a veggie platter from the nearest supermarket, but it's way more fun to do your own version and serve it with homemade Green Goddess vinaigrette. "I'm a huge fan of veggies and I generally like them raw, or close to raw," says Wanderlust Hollywood executive chef Seamus Mullen. "Having a crudité is a perfect way to get your veggies with plenty of variety of flavor, color, and texture. This is a perfect dish to share with friends."
