4th of July Fruit Salad


I love to make fruit salad with little ones for a couple of different reasons.  First, and most obvious being that it gets them really excited about eating fruit - they get to help every step of the way and that ownership gives them the confidence to try things that they otherwise may not.  The second wonderful thing about fruit salad is that it is relatively easy to put together, you may need to cut up some of the ingredients, but other than that it is just pouring and mixing.  There is no cooking involved at all.

This fruit salad is perfect for a patriotic summer event. It uses red and blue fruits, which are seasonal and fresh.  It can also be customized according to your class or families' tastes or dietary restrictions.

Choose from the following ingredients to create your perfect patriotic salad, you can include as many as you wish but it is helpful to try and have an equal amount of both red and blue ingredients to make it as visually appealing as possible.

Red:
Strawberries
Red raspberries
Cherries
Watermelon

Blue:
Blueberries
Black raspberries
Concord grapes

White:
Red skinned apples
Bananas
Marshmallows

Once you've combined all of your ingredients in a large bowl, add either a quarter cup of powdered sugar or one container of Cool Whip and mix it all together. Enjoy your patriotic fruit salad!
