Here’s a fresh and cheesy delight to serve your guests. Fruits and three types of cheese decorate this appetizing platter that's ready in just 40 minutes!
oz Gorgonzola, Stilton or other blue cheese wedge
oz Brie or Camembert cheese wedge
oz log of goat cheese rolled in chopped fresh herbs such as chives, parsley or basil
cups melon cubes (cantaloupe, honeydew or watermelon)
lb grape clusters (red, green or purple)
Bay leaves or fresh herb sprigs such as mint, basil or parsley, if desired
Choose a large round or rectangular tray, along with a small round cutting board or ceramic tile. Set the cutting board or tile on the tray for the cheese wedges. Allow cheese to stand at room temperature 30 minutes.
Quarter the pineapple, cut out the fruit and cut into wedges. Use the rind as a "basket" on the tray for the fruit wedges. Place the melon cubes on the tray on bay leaves. Arrange grape clusters on the tray.
For a guest-pleasing platter, choose a variety of cheeses, then pair them with an assortment of fresh fruit.
Fresh berries would also be beautiful on the tray. Serve them in small bowls on the tray.
