LC Dippers Note
Funny how everyone tends to obsess over what sorta dip to set out for an occasion, yet the dippers–you know, what you dip into the dip–are typically an afterthought. Not that there’s anything wrong with the expected crudités and supermarket baguette, it’s just that we like to think outside the proverbial box of water crackers. Like radishes. Steamed asparagus or green beans. Jicama. Homemade pita. You see where we’re going with this. Feel free to let us know your preferred dipper in a comment below.
