Sometimes when I hear the word potluck, I panic just a bit. I want to bring something that everyone will enjoy, but I don’t always have time to make something incredible. This was very true a few weeks ago.
I came up with this solution and had very little to bring home with me. I thought, everyone likes fruit, but fruit trays don’t always do well. What if I present the fruit a little different and add some different yummy nuts? It worked great. I used fresh red grapes, cut the stems so that four to six grapes could be picked up at a time, beautiful fresh strawberries, and sweetened dehydrated cranberries. To these I added plain pecans and tamari cashews. Then, to add a little extra sweet, dark chocolate covered almonds. It was a big hit and I was less stressed.
