Dried Fruit and Cheese Platter Summer Party Idea

We are now in the middle of summer and you are all probably not interested in cooking in the your hot kitchen at home. Grilling seems to be the best option for summer. Everyone wants to be outside whether it be in the yard or at the beach. 
Next time you have people over, think about serving a cold cheese platter and some white wines to cool your guests down after a hot sunny day at the beach. There are so many great cheeses to choose from now that you can really have everything from Humboldt Fog to Cheddar on your platter along with fresh berries, nuts, grapes, and dried fruit. Add some bread sticks and sliced toasted raisin bread and you have a whole meal for a hot night. The dried fruit is full of fiber and gives a depth of flavor to the cheese that is usually overlooked. 

Make a cheese platter and add some of the Megafruit baby pineapple, lychee, and mangosteen flavors to your dried fruit mix on the cheese platter and get your guests curious about the new flavors they are trying for the first time.
