When it comes to summer entertaining, I am all about keeping it as simple as possible. I try to keep the heat in the kitchen to a minimum and take all the cooking, grilling and eating outside. This allows me to spend more time mingling with family and friends. Food is always the core of everything in our home. It is a delicious way to bring people together. Since our family owns a very large fruit and vegetable farm, I like to take advantage of all the delicious produce that we grow here. The summer bounty is in full swing, so why not utilize those fresh fruits to your advantage? This easy summer fruit and cheese board is a delicious appetizer or snack to make for your guests.
One of my favorite wholesome snacks is Blue Diamond Whole Natural Almonds. I added them to this fruit and cheese board too. They add just the perfect amount of crunch. Blue Diamond Whole Natural Almonds are an excellent source of vitamin E and magnesium. Almonds provide a multitude of health benefits. You can find Blue Diamond Whole Natural Almonds at Walmart. Save money too by taking advantage of this iBotta offer. Take your snack game to the next level with this delicious superfood.
Your guests will love this easy Charcuterie board made with fresh summer fruits, cheeses and Blue Diamond Almonds.
What to Add To A Summer Fruit And Cheese Board

Summer fruit ideas and options:
Hit up your local farmers market for the freshest available fruits in your area. Create a colorful assortment of fresh seasonal fruits for your guests. You can choose as many fruits as you like. Here are some tasty ideas.
Cheese To Serve:
As far as the cheese goes, my motto is to serve what you like. I would serve 3-4 different varieties. One from each of the categories below will give your board and nice assortment and something for everyone’s taste. I choose fresh mozzarella, fontina, parmesan and aged cheddar for this one.
- Soft: burrata, mozzarella, brie
- Semi-Soft: stilton, Roquefort, Gorgonzola, Fontina
- Semi-Hard: manchego, Swiss, provolone
- Hard: cheddar, parmesan, pecorino, Asiago
How To Arrange Your Fruit And Cheese Board:
When it comes to arranging the board, this is where you can get creative. I added the Blue Diamond Whole Natural Almonds to the center and then arranged the fruit in a colorful rainbow around them. You can leave the almonds in the container or take them out. I think keeping them in the can keeps them dry and away from the juices of the fruit.
