Star Shaped Fruit Salad

Star Shaped Fruit Salad

I made a fruit salad for a Memorial Day cookout and I added a little something extra.  I came up with a great idea to use red and blue fruit, and cut the watermelon into stars. The result is perfect for any summer meal, especially on the Fourth of July!

Star Shaped Fruit Salad Directions

I got out some star shaped cookie cutters then sliced a watermelon to about the same thickness as the cutters. Then I just pushed the cutters into the watermelon to cut the shapes. I ended up enlisting McGeeky’s help, and he had the great idea of using the end of a spoon handle to push the cutter down without mashing the melon along the way.

Then we gently pressed the watermelon out of the cutter.

I cut stars in several sizes, for some variety, and each one worked just fine.

I kept with a patriotic theme and added red and blue fruit to my watermelon stars, and arranged it all carefully in a bowl. It was a huge hit at the party!

Top with Cool Whip or vanilla ice cream if you prefer.
