Expert Tips

  • Zucchini does not need to be peeled if the skin is tender and unwaxed. Grating the skin into the vegetable mixture adds deep green flecks to the spread.
  • Look for spreadable cheese with garlic and herbs in the dairy case by cheese spreads.
  • This colorful appetizer also can be served with breadsticks.
  • This spread can be assembled on a serving plate up to 2 hours in advance. Cover it loosely and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • Assemble two smaller serving plates so one can remain chilled while the other is served.
