- (5) Strawberries
- (4) String Cheese Sticks, such as Frigo® Cheese Heads® String Cheese!
- Arrange blueberries into rectangle shape onto cheeseboard, piling if necessary.
- Cut string cheese into small circle pieces. Arrange into four even horizontal rows.
- Cut strawberries into long strips, red exterior facing out. Arrange into three even horizontal rows, in between the cheese rows.

That is so much fun! I love how pretty it is, and I love how easy. I have to do this for our 4th party.
Bill Sweeney says
The thing I love about this is how easy and healthy it is. It looks like it would take like 5 minutes tops to make.
You had me at cheese and then platter! Haha, this really is a decorative piece for the 4th of July. I would have to pry myself to eat it, rather than just cherish the look. Brilliant way to serve up some cheese during 4th of July festivities!
It turned out so cute. My kids are the biggest cheese lovers I know so this would be a good hit here.
