Fruit and Cheese Platter
Recipe: Fruit and Cheese Platter

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch kale, separated into leaves and washed
  • 1 bunch seedless grapes, washed
  • 4 cheeses with different milks and textures, allowing 3 ounces of cheese per person
  • 1 orange, sliced
  • 1 star fruit, sliced
  • Several small, fresh cranberries, cut in half
  • Assorted nuts or fruit such as strawberries, kiwis or pomegranate wedges (to fill in holes)

Instructions

  1. Arrange kale on a large, flat platter. Place grapes in the center.
  2. Arrange cheese around grapes, slicing some pieces for easier service. Cutting bite sized wedges of cheeses allows guest to taste the rind as well as the creamier parts. (It's O.K. to eat the rind as long as it's not wax or paper.) Keep cheeses separated on the platter; mild cheese lovers will not appreciate the smeared camembert on their havarti.
  3. Arrange orange slices around cheese. Center a cranberry half on the center of each star fruit slice and arrange on platter. Fill in holes with nuts or fruit.

*The ingredients and garnishes listed below are merely suggestions or a starting point. Have fun creating your own cheese platter according to your budget, palate and whims.
