American Flag Fruit Skewers with Easy Lemon Curd Sauce

Patriotic Flag Skewers

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!

    Not to be picky or anything but, your stripes go the wrong way for an American Flag.
    It is kind of important to those of us that serviced so, like anyone that reads blogs and comments, I feel I can ask you to fix it or call it something other than “American Flag Skewers”.
    I am just kind of rude that way.
    Thank you, I appreciate your quick attention to this.

      Hi Linda – Yes, I did notice that the “stripes” are not lined up like a traditional flag. If you use your imagination though, this plate looks like a waving flag with ripples! Thanks you for your service – and have a happy Fourth!
