Sarah and I made this pretty little board while my nephew and his friend were helping us with some yard work. Of course, after we photographed it, we called them in for a taste test. Literally 3 minutes later, that board was taken down. Granted, this was two 18-year old boys, but wow. Very impressive. A whole board of fruit just disappeared. Gone.

Food should be pretty. You eat with your eyes first, of course. But that doesn’t mean it has to be difficult. Yogurt dip? 5 minutes and some stirring. Fruit? Just wash, cut and arrange. No cooking. No pots and pans. Just an easy peasy pretty load of summer goodness on a platter.
