A Quick Fruit Platter

Wow, I've been out of the loop way too long.  So much has been going on lately and I really need to get back into the swing of things.  That said, I wanted to post about a really cool tutorial I saw on YouTube.

I have wanted to get involved at church for a while now.  The only problem...where to serve?  As a homeschooling mom, I didn't want to work in the children's ministry so I jumped at the chance to serve at our women's bible study on the food committee.  I made a light dinner of chicken salad in croissants/soft rolls, pasta salad, and a fruit platter.

Surprisingly, it was really quick and easy to assemble!  I even used pansies from my garden which was a great hit with the ladies.  Here is the link for the fruit platter on YouTube or you can get the recipe at Divas Can Cook.  She gives step-by step instructions on how to cut and assemble the fruit.  With warmer temps on its way, this would be a great dish to bring to your next picnic or gathering.  Enjoy!
