Kick off the 4th of July weekend with this festive Red, White and Blueberry Fruit Salad packed juicy watermelon, crisp apples and delicious berries all tossed together in a honey-citrus dressing!
There’s nothing like diving into a crisp, cold bowl of fruit on a hot summer day and this festive red, white and blueberry fruit salad makes the PERFECT addition to your 4th of July, Memorial Day or Labor Day holiday! Not only will this make a fun showstopping centerpiece on your table, but it’s absolutely delicious and only takes about 5 minutes to make! A big fruit salad also just goes hand-in-hand with summer food and makes a great side dish whether you’re grilling out, having a picnic or simply sipping wine on your back deck with a good cheeseboard (yup this one is perfect for this holiday!)
To make this fun and add a little extra something, I used these super cute star-shaped cookie cutters to cut out different sized stars with the fruit which your kids will love doing with you too! (These star-shaped cutters arrived NEXT DAY too so you’ll definitely have them in time for the 4th!)
INGREDIENTS YOU’LL NEED
- Apples (honey crisp apples are my FAVORITE, but any apples will work)
- Lime juice, orange juice + honey – this will make your dressing and fresh squeezed citrus is always best!
- Fresh mint – this is optional, but tastes delicious and looks great tossed together!
