Notes: I went to the farmers market and was inspired by the cheese man to make this. I got fresh fruits, bread, veggies, and came home to make a platter for the Oscars! We had a number of people over and this was a great hit! The garlic adds a lot of flavor, feel free to cook it a little if you don’t like the raw flavor, and I suggest a squeeze of lemon juice if you want. A great hit at a party, and is very colorful and easy to serve. Enjoy guys!
