A Cheese Tray Dressed to Impress

Summer may be officially winding down, but we are nowhere near done enjoying our favorite summer cheese trays. I love making this Fresh Summer Cheese Platter when friends come over. It’s so easy to prep! And there’s no cooking required (unless you make your own crostini). It’s just perfect for summer snacking! And so beautiful and colorful. Everyone will love the combination of tangy balsamic, sweet berries, and crunchy crostini. It’s such an impressive way to serve a simple, delicious appetizer at a casual get-together with friends.

This stunning Summer Cheese Platter is FULL of vibrant flavors and colors! Wow your friends with a medley of cantaloupe, berries, tomatoes, meats, and cheeses, drizzled with olive oil and a balsamic glaze. I created this beautiful platter to announce I was joining the Kroger Fresh Squad. Kroger always has such a great selection of fresh and affordable produce, meats and cheeses to choose from when creating this platter. I can’t wait to share it with you!

How to Make a Fresh Summer Cheese Platter

First, start by washing the tomatoes on the vine and cutting them into thin slices. Cut the cantaloupe into thin wedges. Then place the sliced tomatoes on a large serving platter. Wrap each cantaloupe wedge with a slice of prosciutto and arrange them on the platter. Then place the goat cheese on the platter.

Arrange several leaves of fresh basil all over the bottom of the platter. Place the ciliegine on top of the basil. Slice the snacking tomatoes in half and arrange them on the platter.

Put the salami and provolone roll-ups in various places on the platter. Then add the blackberries, blueberries and cherries. Arrange additional ingredients all over the platter.

Drizzle it all with olive oil and balsamic glaze then sprinkle with sea salt. Serve with crostini and enjoy!
