As the summer months get into full swing, or you’re hosting an event, no matter what the time of day, a fresh fruit platter is an easy item to put together.
YIELDS: 4-6 Servings
Fresh Blueberries ( not pictured)
Cherries ( seasonal & DELICIOUS)
Grapes ( Green & Purple)
Fig Leaves ( easily added; not pictured)
Pineapple ( cut lengthwise, core removed & cut crosswise)
Apple ( cut lengthwise, core removed & cut crosswise)
Watermelon ( Cut into pizza slices)
Cantaloupe ( long & easily cubed)
- Depending on the shape of the board you are using start by place the larger items with space to spare in-between. ( Pineapple, Cantaloupe, & Watermelon.)
- Then take your medium items & place them in between the larger items. ( Apple, Grapes, Strawberries)
- Space on the board should be less & less; no fill in the odds & ends with the blueberries, raspberries, cherries and fig leaves (not necessary).
- If this is for a bigger party double and triple the amount of fruit, repeat process with a larger board!
