Summer Fruit Plate | @hbharvest

So I’m kind of “juiced up”(pun intended) to share this fruit plate with you. I mean, this isn’t really a recipe, so much as it is me telling you how I like to put together my favorite summer fruits! Crazy simple, and crazy basic, but so much fun!

First things first though, let’s just talk a little about summer in general. Like how is your summer going? I cannot even believe we are more than half way through JULY!! Why is it that summer always flies by way too fast?!

I am determined to take a little break sometime soon and just sit in the sun and CHILL. Anyone else with me or what?

For real though, what have you guys been doing, and man even more importantly, what have you guys been eating?? In the food department, I have been living summer up. I’m talking all the veggies, all the fruits and everything grilled. I am LOVING it. I actually have zero thoughts of fall (my favorite season) rolling through my head. In fact, I am currently wishing summer could last a whole year. I’m just kind of loving these long days, full of sunshine and warmer temps. Totally my thing…check back in a month or so and I might be getting excited for fall, but right now, I am all about SUMMER.

Plus, I’ve got little miss Asher hanging out with me a lot more since she’s on summer vacation. We’ve been doing crafts, making doughnuts, a little cleaning, and then, umm, more doughnuts?

What…the girl likes her chocolate. A LOT. Can you blame her, nope!

OKok, let’s chat about this summer fruit plate!

Isn’t it the prettiest?!? When I shot it last week I was basically jumping up and down with excitement. Yes, summer berries and stone fruits totally EXCITE me.

So, here’s the deal. This really is not a recipe, it’s more of a guide…me telling you exactly what I love to put on my summer fruit plates. You ready? Here it goes!

I start with the fruits, I mean, obviously. Really, you cannot go wrong here. I personally love a nice variety. I like to go with mixed berries, melons, stone fruits, tropical fruits, like mangos and/or pineapple, and of course fresh figs! There are ZERO rules when it comes to a fruit plate, so have fun with it and use YOUR very favorite fruits. For the board pictured, I went with…




…nectarines + peaches

…sweet cherries





Ahh, yeah, I like a lot of fruit, oh man, it is SO good!

Ok, now for the kind of fun parts. For me personally, no fruit plate is complete without at least a little cheese. Yes, seriously, cheese is needed! I like to take buffalo mozzarella balls and roll them in basil pesto, it’s DELISH for snacking bite by bite or for eating along with your fruit. I find that mozzarella and basil go with basically every fruit.

To finish, I like to add some kind of nut. For this plate I went with honey roasted almonds because I love honey and fruit together.

OH, that reminds me! I also love adding honeycomb. One, it adds such a pretty touch, and two, it’s awesome with stone fruits and figs. YUM!

DONE. So that’s my fruit plate. Simple right? This plate is perfect for any summer gathering or just a light lunch with friends. It’s actually what I served yesterday to the film crew…with maybe a little more cheese and a few extra carbs to fill us up! 🙂

  1. DIET BUSTER: Dried fruit packs up to 8 times more calories and sugar than fresh fruit. See what other “health” foods could be wrecking your diet.

  2. This is what i call a fruit platter! I always have the melon and prosciutto combo, those two simply belong together. And of course basil for days! Perfection!

  3. Result: a masterpiece! I never know how you could make the fruit look so vibrant and colorful!

  4. I have a question about Staub cookware. Everything is sticking–eggs, etc. And I am using plenty of oil before putting food in pan. Last night I sautéed zucchini and added some cornmeal. When I do this in the non-stick pans, I get a crispy finish but all the cornmeal stuck to the bottom of the Staub and the zucchini was naked and kind of mushy. Any suggestions? The pans are about six months old and I have been as careful with them as could be.
    Thank you!
    Love your recipes!!

  5. Who needs dinner when you have this gorgeous fruit plate?! This is what I want to live on all summer long :).
