A pretty and patriotic summer fruit salad is the perfect summer side dish for all of your summer parties, from memorial day to 4th of July! It’s easy to make with healthy seasonal ingredients and is sure to be a crowd-pleaser! (gluten-free, vegan)
Admittedly, this patriotic summer fruit salad is not really a recipe.
It involves putting some fruit in a bowl and doesn’t actually require any measuring. Which is exactly how I like my recipes, to be quite honest. I realize some things, like baking, require precise recipes, and they are great for therapeutic kitchen sessions on Sundays.
But in the lazy days of summer when you’re invited to potlucks and pool parties and all kinds of celebrations, you need a quick and easy side dish that doesn’t take a whole lot of effort.
If easy and delicious is what you’re searching for, this patriotic summer fruit salad is it. You’ve got fresh summer fruit, which is delicious all on its own, and patriotic red, white and blue. It can be made ahead of time or thrown together at the last minute. And everyone loves a pretty fruit salad. What could be better?
I chose to use watermelon, strawberries, and blueberries in this gorgeous fruit salad, because they don’t require pitting or special treatment, just the cutting of fresh watermelon, which I always have in my refrigerator in the summer anyway. You are welcome to use cherries, blackberries, or raspberries if you have them on hand.
This delicious patriotic summer fruit salad is all you need for easy, breezy and healthy summer entertainment!
