What better way is there to serve fruits and vegetables at your next party than to have it form a beautiful rainbow? As Louis Armstrong so eloquently sang:

“The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky…”

A rainbow plate is sure to bring a smile to your guests’ faces and it’s not that hard to make either!

You decide whether you want to use 5, 6 or 7 colors to create your rainbow. You can also make more than one platter. Use them as appetizers before the actual meal or have them spread on a cold cuts table. Some people prefer to serve fruits on one dish and vegetables on the other. It’s all up to you!

The first thing you’ll need to do is create a list of all of the fruits and vegetables that you’ll be using. Make your life easier and write out this list before going to the supermarket. That way you’ll know exactly what items and how much of each one you’ll be purchasing.

A small platter like the one in the picture above serves 3 people. So your plans will be based on the amount of guests will be attending your party. For example if you’ll be having 18 people at your celebration, you want to plan for 6 platters.

After you but the fruits and vegetables, wash them off really well and let them sit in water with cleanser for about 20 minutes. Then simply peel, cut and arrange all of the fruits into several platters in the shape of a rainbow. Some of the vegetables in the list below need to be cooked and seasoned before serving. At the end of each one you can use golden coins to that will remind everyone about the pot of gold or white marshmallows to look like clouds.

If you would like some ideas for each color, I’ve listed fruits and vegetables for each one below:
