So why haven’t we all been serving fruit platters all this time? There’s an excellent change you thought fruit for dessert wasn’t exciting or tasty enough. If that describes your sentiments and you thought that a fruit platter was boring you’re a) wrong and b) not doing it right. While a fruit platter is definitely a simple dessert in that it is easy to make and all about the natural flavors of the fruit, it’s also an art form. And when you do it just right, fruit can be just the treat you and your friends are craving.
