I love patriotic food, and so I can’t wait for the Fourth of July to come to make red, white and blueberry foods.
Fourth of July is the perfect time to go all out. We of the Kelly klan love picnics with pizzazz and American pride. No, you don’t have to salute this plate of fruit, but you just might want to cheer!
Last year a friend of mine brought a plate of fruit arranged like the flag to our picnic, and I took mental notes for this Fourth of July. I added a lemon sauce, making this fruit salad sing. Guests just pick up a skewer or two and slide the fruit off onto their plates – and Voila! – instant fruit salad! So, so easy. This stunning plate of fruit skewers takes 20 minutes to put together – and that includes making the sauce.
So, here’s the entire recipe:
You will need chilled blueberries, raspberries and cubes of apple soaked with lemon water – arranged artfully on bamboo skewers and placed on a pretty platter to look like the American flag. Then, whisk together 1/2 cup of purchased chilled lemon curd and 2 tablespoons of chilled plain yogurt, Drizzle the lemon sauce on top and serve. Singing the Star Spangled Banner and/or playing some John Phillips Sousa while you prepare this is optional, but highly encouraged!
Have Fun on the Fourth, Everyone!
