A Festive Charcuterie Board with Three Homemade Dips...

Charcuterie Board with Homemade Dips... / via oh joy!

It's no secret that I'm in love with charcuterie boards! They're one of my go-to's when hosting parties because they're made of easily-sourced ingredients, can be assembled for both large or smaller gatherings, and they are pretty enough to double as a centerpiece. When entertaining, I like to add my own personal touch whenever possible to bring an extra pop of color to the table.

So today, in partnership with KitchenAid, I'm showing you how to create three delicious dipping sauces (bright pink beet hummus, garlic herb yogurt dip, and spinach cream cheese dip!) using the 7 Cup Food Processor. Come see how...

The KitchenAid® 7 Cup Food Processor is the real MVP because it's so easy to use. Sometimes I avoid cooking for parties entirely because of the clean-up, but the bowl, lid, and accessories are ALL dishwasher-safe, which gives me one less thing to have to wash by hand. It's also really simple to use because it has a one-click, twist-free bowl assembly, latched lid, and a sealed and leak-resistant work bowl.

The sauces add such a fun element to the table! I could've easily used plain hummus, but bright pink hummus is way more fun and is exactly the unexpected splash of color and flavor that I love.
