Traditionally, this food item referred to fresh or pickled vegetables that were prepared by thinly slicing them into strips and stick shapes to be served as an hors d'oeuvre. Today, a wide number of foods are considered to be Crudités when served on appetizer trays. Not only vegetables, but also fruits and breads are often included as part of a group of Crudités served during parties and events. Vegetables such as carrots, celery, sweet peppers, jicma, and asparagus can all be sliced into thin strips or served as stick shapes to be prepared and placed on appetizer trays.
