Fruit and Cheese Symphony

Friday, April 27th, 2012

The season of cool, natural and light snacks is upon us. Nothing could be better than the gourmet combination of ripe, sweet fruits with cheese on a spring sunny day!

“Pair cheese and fruit for a healthy snack or easy appetizer when entertaining!” says cheese lover Nadia Muna Gil in her Cheesaholics Anonymous blog. “The salt in the cheese” – she continues -  “is balanced by the sweet in the fruit, and the crunch of the fruit contrasts the suppleness of the cheese. In short, your salivary glands will think they died and went to heaven.”

We couldn’t agree more!
