Berry Beautiful Cheese Plate

With just a few ingredients you can make an amazing platter, such as this one. Not only is it beautiful, but refreshing as well. This dish features all organic fruits and cheese. What a wonderful dish to bring to a springtime brunch or any occasion that you see as fit. I love to have this on a lazy Sunday afternoon, while sitting outside listening to the birds and the wind whistling through the trees. What a peaceful and refreshing way to enjoy your afternoon!  Serve as an appetizer, snack or dessert.
