Tip: Boiled broccoli stems have a slight sweetness that’s great with dips. 

Tip: To keep sliced pears from browning, try salt water (really!). Dissolve 1/2 tsp. kosher salt in 1 cup water. Add the fruit, soak for 10 minutes, and then drain. Give ’em a rinse just before you add them to your platter. 

Tip: For a kick of color, opt for watermelon radishes over the regular ones. Just slice them thinly and halve if large.
