I suppose a stone fruit platter is less of a recipe and more of a serving idea. Fruit platters are a common party staple, and they usually consist of melons and grapes. While those fruits are delicious, a stone fruit platter is something a little more special and pretty. Stone fruit has a short summer season, so I like to use them as much as possible while they’re available.
These fruits go perfectly with a cheese platter, too, so make sure to serve them together! This platter made an appearance at my baby shower and very quickly disappeared. I set up another one a week later for these photos and we ate it with a wedge of fromager d’affinois before our weekly pizza and movie night. We ate about half the platter you see here between the four of us, and the leftovers were split between my baby belly and my first round of sparkling virgin sangrias.
Go pick out your favorite summer fruits and set up a beautiful platter for your next party, or just your next meal.
