Whether it's for a dinner party or a birthday party, fresh fruit plates are a delicious addition to enjoy without counting the calories.
Fruit plates are suitable for almost any diet and are usually the one thing everyone agrees on.
Some fruits are better suited for fruit plates, and here are some tips for making them pleasing to the eye and the taste buds.
1- Choose your fruit carefully
The first step is to put in the same tray, the fruits that lend themselves the best to your presentation and your theme (if there is any). Here is a non-exhaustive list of fruits to inspire you: Watermelon, Papaya, Guava, Strawberries, Dragon Fruit, Mango, Blueberries, Raspberries, Clusters, Grapes, Lychees, Blackberries, Kiwi, Pineapple, etc.
2- Avoid oxidation
Some fruits are good in the mouth, but cannot stand to be exposed or mixed with others.
If you are making a plate of fruit that you do not intend to eat quickly.
It is preferable to avoid cut fruits such as: Bananas, Pears, Coconuts, overripe fruits, because they change color when in contact with air.
3- Fruit presentation
The way you present the fruit is almost as important as the fruit itself. When setting up a fruit platter, there are a few things to keep in mind:
Colors - Alternate colors and use contrasting colors to avoid clutter. For example, place a row of
dark berries between light strawberries and watermelons to make the colors stand out.
Combinations - Place two fruits that complement each other well side by side! Mango slices next to a papaya? Yes, please!
Theme - In some cases, it's best to have a unique theme. For example, a tropical party
A tropical party would be a good place for fruits like guava, mango and pineapple...
Seasonal - For parties without a theme, look for seasonal fruits. They are often the tastiest because they are naturally ripe at this time of year.
Size - For guests to get the most out of your fresh fruit, you should present each piece in a bite size format. It's more comfortable and appetizing.
Finally, fruit is fun! Feel free to get creative. Use the tip of a pineapple as a centerpiece or place
or place some kale under the plate as a garnish - the possibilities are endless.
