Fresh Fruit Board

Everyone loves a great fruit plate, and this fresh board is perfect for everything from baby showers to office parties. It’s super easy and uber customizable, the only thing to keep in mind is that you choose fresh, pretty, unblemished fruit. Plus you can keep it interesting with different shapes and fruit cuts: Use a melon baller and serve juicy melon balls in a bowl, cut oranges into half-moons, and serve kiwis in sliced rounds–you get the idea. The other key part of this fruit platter are the dips! My Chocolate Hazelnut Dip is super easy and delicious. Whether you make your own or buy something tasty from the store, everyone loves a good dip. Plus, they make your board look pretty and professional.

Keep It In Season

Below is a list of fruits that will make an amazing spread. However, it’s alway best to use fruit that’s in season where ever you are–trust me, it tastes much better that way (and it’s better for the environment), even if it’s available out of season!
