2 servings


  • 1 cup unsalted roasted whole almonds

  • 6 ounces unsalted roasted pistachios in shells

  • 32 large strawberries, stems attached

  • 8 ounces raspberries

  • 8 ounces blackberries

  • 16 large dried, pitted Medjool dates

  • 4 thin slices prosciutto, cut into quarters

  • 4 blood oranges, peel and pith removed, sliced crosswise

  • 2 tablespoons pomegranate arils

  • 1 (4 ounce) bar bittersweet chocolate

  • 1 tablespoon honey


  1. Begin with a clean wooden or marble board that's at least 16 inches in diameter. Position 2 small serving bowls in the center of the board. Fill one with almonds and the other with pistachios.

  2. Wash strawberries, raspberries and blackberries; pat dry with paper towels. Set the berries aside to dry completely.

  3. Wrap each date in a piece of prosciutto and place on the board next to the bowls. Arrange the raspberries and blackberries next to the dates and bowls. Arrange blood orange slices by slightly layering them around the berries. Sprinkle pomegranate arils over the orange slices.

  4. Arrange the dry strawberries in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Coarsely chop chocolate and place in a microwaveable bowl. Microwave on High in 15-second increments, stirring in between, for 1 minute, or until the chocolate is melted and smooth. Allow the chocolate to cool slightly before spooning into a piping bag or a zip-top plastic bag; cut a very small hole in the tip of the bag. Pipe the chocolate onto the strawberries in a zigzag pattern; let the berries stand until the chocolate sets, about 15 minutes. Place the strawberries on the outside edge of the board. Just before serving, drizzle honey over the prosciutto-wrapped dates.


Equipment: Wooden or marble board (at least 16 inches in diameter); parchment paper

To make ahead: Refrigerate chocolate-drizzled strawberries for up to 8 hours.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
