Large platters of cheese, fruit and crackers are one of my go-to ideas for easy entertaining.
First of all, there is absolutley no cooking involved; second, they are visually beautiful (people love them) and finally, they are delicious!
Here's what I do:
I like to wash and dry my fruit first- you dont want drippy wet fruit making your crackers soggy, right? So do this earlier in the day- oh! that's another reason I like these platters, you can make them up AHEAD of time!!
So I like to arrange the cheeses first, a good variety is nice, here I am using a nice aged sharp cheddar, a wedge of blue cheese and a log of my Fresh Herbed Goat Cheese- click HERE to see how I made it!
Next I add in the fruit. Again, a colorful assortment is always nice- red and green grapes, strawberries, apple wedges would be good- just use whatever you like!
Finally, I add the crackers, once again- a variety of shapes, sizes and style crackers is best- it looks better to mix crackers and gives your guests options!
Finally, I add any utensils needed like cheese knives for cutting or serving the cheeses.
Give it a try at your next party or get together!
