Watermelon Fruit Skewer Flag

Make this festive fruit salad for the 4th of July!
Watermelon Fruit Skewer Flag

Watermelon is one of my favorite summer fruits, add in some bananas and blueberries and it’s a healthy snack for the 4th of July.

  1. Cut watermelon into slices of roughly the same width.
  2. Using a star-shaped cookie cutter, make watermelon stars out of the slices.  Save the watermelon scraps for salads, juice or as a snack while you skewer.
  3. Slice a banana into coins about the same width as the watermelon stars.
  4. Skewer the bananas and watermelon stars alternating back and forth. For the blue part of the flag, place some blueberries on the top third of a few skewers. If you have a mini star cookie cutter, you can even make little white stars out of bananas to intersperse with the blueberries.
  5. Assemble the skewers on a plate so the bananas line up and the watermelons line up, to look like stripes.  Place the skewers with blueberries in the top left corner, to complete this star spangled platter!
