Here’s the perfect fruit salad for the 4th of July… In the shape of the American flag!
Ahead of time, cut 17 strawberries in half so you have 34 pieces total. You’ll also need 28 slices of banana and 30 blueberries. Then set out 11 skewers.
Travis loved helping me puzzle through each skewer in order as we worked left to right across the flag. The first 5 skewers needed: strawberry, banana, strawberry, banana, and then six blueberries.
The remaining 6 skewers needed: strawberry, banana, strawberry, banana, strawberry. I was so proud of Travis threading these on without poking himself!
And now you have an American flag! Cue up the patriotic tunes as you work (You’re a Grand Old Flag comes to mind), and you have all the makings of a perfect start to Independence Day.
You can share this fruit platter with a crowd… but Travis was determined to eat his away across Old Glory solo!
