Yum! Red White and Blueberry fruit salad?! Yes please!
With Summer nipping at our heels, I am always on the look out for easy, fun, recipes and the Red White and Blueberry Fruit Salad is no exception! A perfect recipe for Memorial Day (celebrate our heroes!) or 4th of July (celebrate our freedom!) or anywhere in between this yummy fruit salad is simple to make, kids love it, adults love it, I mean, who wouldn’t love it?
I am all about eating ‘cool’ foods when it gets warm outside – I want to spend as little time in front of a hot, baking oven as little as I have to….and adding a salad to any meal, potluck or barbecue is just topping on the cake!
