Make a ho-hum cheese tray spectacular with a few unexpected additions. One large wedge of cheese looks like you splurged, but it's actually less expensive than offering several smaller choices.

Recipe Time

Prep: 10 Minutes


1 (8-oz.) wedge fontina cheese
2 Fuyu persimmons, sliced
1/4 pound thinly sliced prosciutto
Sliced ciabatta bread


1. Arrange all ingredients on a large serving platter or cutting board.

Party Tip: Fuyu persimmons, which are a beautiful red-orange fruit, are available in October through February. Shaped like a tomato, they have a super-sweet melon-like flavor. Fuyus should be eaten while still firm and crisp versus the Hachiya, another type that should be enjoyed when the fruit is very soft.
