Prep time : 5-15 min depending on size of spread

Cheese platters are summer's perfect appetizer. Easy to prepare and typically eaten quickly... there's no need to repackage and put it away!

At Redhead Creamery we believe in simplicity when it comes to creating a beautiful cheese plate. It can be as simple as 1 cheese and a few berries, or a larger spread for entertaining more people. 

If you're wanting to wow people's tastebuds this summer, be sure to include a couple cheeses that you know your guests will love, but then include one or two that YOU love - knowing that your guests may have never tried them before. This creates a conversation piece and encourages people to try new things.

Finally, spruce up your summer platters with seasonal berries, vegetables, jams or jellies and a few light crackers. It adds beautiful color and a refreshing change from the heavy winter foods we are used to (in Minnesota anyways...).
