I made this fruit and cheese platter for our New Years Eve progressive dinner in the neighborhood last night. While not exactly a recipe I thought it turned out nicely and wanted to share it with y’all. Sometimes putting together a fruit and cheese platter can be a little intimidating, but it really is easy and goes together quickly.
One note to make is that I always put my apple slices in a bowl of mostly water with a splash of orange juice (or any citrus) for a little while. This prevents browning.
Embellish that Fruit and Cheese Platter
I have rosemary growing in my yard, and it makes a great garnish, besides adding that great aroma. It actually has a “piney” scent to me, which fits right in with the holidays. Any herb would work, though. And, your green garnish doesn’t have to be edible if you don’t have herbs. I have gone outside and cut a few sprigs of boxwood to make a platter of something look pretty. Whatever you have on hand will be just fine.
And, what a great chance to use your good serving pieces, right? Don’t leave those pretty things on the top shelve collecting dust. Get them out, clean them up and use them!
