    Bergy's Note:

    You may make each of these four recipes separately and serve separately but they are so eye appealling all arranged on one platter. There is no cooking involved and you may make them ahead. The tuna tomatoes, and shrimp must be refrigerated until serving. The melon may be served ice cold or at room temperature. The dates are best at room temperature Enjoy!
