The best fruits to include are ones that are not only visually appealing but also offer distinctive flavors. Fruits like grapes, strawberries, and raspberrys add bright colors and sweet flavors, while figs and apricots add a deeper, more complex taste.

Additionally, citrus fruits like oranges, lemons, and grapefruits offer a tangy and refreshing contrast to the rich and savory meats and cheeses.
