As Summer is slowly coming to an end and routines are slowly being put in to place, the warm evenings should still call for outdoor evening dining. I remember feeling like I didn't have the right set up or all the "perfect" elements for outdoor dining but all you need is delicious food and great company. And I mean if you want to get extra fancy, a fun seat like a hammock or swing and some string lights.
Grab a family style platter - I opted for a white plate but a wooden round or shallow bowl will also get the job done.
Grab your fruits - Rainier cherries, peaches, pineapple, and strawberries.
Wash your fruit thoroughly and slice the peaches, pineapple and strawberries.
Step one: Lay your largest fruit (pineapple) down the center of the platter to anchor the display.
Step two: Place your sliced peaches on each side of the pineapple slices.
Step three: Add your sliced strawberries to bring some berries in the mix. The red and yellow color looks amazing together!
Step four: Fill in the blank space with cherries - I love the rainier cherries because they are not only delicious, they fit the color palette. We are eating with our eyes remember?
Step five: Finish off with garnish that includes fresh mint leaves and edible floral petals.
Now it's time to present your platter....
