No Fuss Fourth of July Fruit Salad

With the 4th of July right around the corner, many of us are thinking of which red, white, and blue themed recipes we will be making.  And, if you are like me, you want a recipe that is simple to prep, and does not involve too much time in the kitchen.  Less time in prep mode equals more time spent with friends and family on this fun-filled holiday!  To aid you in your search, here is an extremely simple July 4th themed fruit salad for you to make and enjoy:

Bananas, Strawberries and Blueberries, oh MY!What you will need:

Note: this recipe can be scaled up or down to suit your needs

  • 2 cups chopped strawberries
  • A handful of raspberries
  • 1 cup of blueberries
  • 1 apple, peeled and chopped
  • 2 bananas, peeled and thickly sliced
  • Zest of 1 lemon or orange (optional)
  • 2 tsp. juice of 1 lemon or orange (optional)

To assemble the fruit salad, place all of your prepped fruit in a bowl to fit.  Next, sprinkle the zest and juice on top.  Using a serving spoon or rubber spatula, gently mix the fruit until well coated with the zest and juice.

Remember, it is always a good idea to wash fruit before chopping.  What better way to celebrate summer colors than with this bright colander?  And, when serving your Fourth of July treats this year, or any year, don’t forget to grab themed coasters!
