I had never heard the word “crudités,” so I looked it up. (Took me two tries to get the spelling.) It’s a fancy name for a vegetable tray (which you probably already know by now). It’s from a French word for “rawness,” which came from a Latin word for “indigestion.” 😂


@grammargirl I prefer to ignore the accent mark and assume it rhymes with "Luddites".
