A fruit-and-cheese platter is about as easy as it gets. Purchase favorite cheeses, preserves, dried fruits, breads, and crackers, and arrange them on a serving tray or cutting board. Complete your presentation by adding roasted garlic―it spreads well and melts in your mouth. Follow these simple steps for roasting garlic.
1. Cut off pointed end of desired number of garlic bulbs; place bulbs on a piece of aluminum foil, and drizzle with olive oil. Fold foil to seal.
2. Bake at 425° for 30 minutes; let cool.
