Here is an easy and really pretty fruit platter you can take to your next gathering. I just love the fresh taste of fruit at this time of year, it feels like such an indulgence. It is also an excellent compliment to a Brie and Rosemary cracker plate. I hope you like this simple recipe as much as I do.
