4th of July Fruit Skewers
We may be celebrating quite a bit differently this year, but we can still create some FUN memories!
- 1 lb. strawberries, hulled and cut to a 1-inch thick pieces
- 2 large bananas
- lemon wedges
- 1/2 lb. blueberries
- 6, 8-inch natural bamboo skewers
Cut the stems off your strawberries, and slice a bit of the ends too, so you can have an even thickness of approximately 1 inch, as shown.
Peel and slice your bananas into 1-inch pieces.
Very lightly squeeze some lemon juice onto your banana slices to prevent them from browning.
Thread half of your skewers starting with a strawberry, followed by a banana slice; repeat until you have 9 pieces of fruit on each.
For the remaining half the skewers, start again with a strawberry, followed by a banana slice and repeat until you have 6 pieces of fruit.
Continue by threading blueberries until you reach the end of the skewer.
Arrange your skewers on a board or platter forming the US flag as shown.
Serve immediately and enjoy!
