There is no need to double dip anymore! This fun recipe is cute, convenient and perfect for almost any party. We used sliced red pepper, celery and carrots, but you could also include cucumber, green onions and even snow peas. It couldn't be any easier to put together either! Just gather your thinly sliced vegetables, a large French baguette and some vegetable dip. Slice your baguette, hollow out the center, add a little dip and stand up your vegetables. That's it!
