There is no doubt that Easter is an amazing time to gather around with friends and family and enjoy some extra days off and celebrate. With such a busy start to the year it feels that everyone is ready to put their feet up and have a little break. We are here to add some more relaxation to your long weekend with this quick and easy platter idea. All you need is the ingredients in your fridge and pantry and it becomes super easy to whip up for friends and family.
