Super Easy to Make Patriotic Fruit Salad

Memorial Day Festive Fruit Salad

July 4th is around the corner – the perfect time to get together with family and friends!  I am all about creating something that is indicative of the holiday (also something a little on the healthy side because there’s always so much junk food around).

My patriotic fruit salad has been a hit each and every time I make it – with the adults and the KIDS (that’s a huge win within itself!).  It is extremely easy to make.

Super Easy Patriotic Fruit Salad

Here’s what you’ll need:

This is all you have to do:

  1. Cut the watermelon into slices.  I used a seedless watermelon, so if you are using a seeded one, you can pick the seeds out if you’d like.Watermelon
  2. With the star-shaped cookie cutter, make as many stars as you can. You can save the extra watermelon to make watermelon water (or watermelon-infused vodka for the after party). Patriotic Fruit Salad Collage
  3. Clean the blueberries.  We found some nice-sized ones at the farmer’s market – they were really yummy too!Blueberries
  4. Peel the lychee and remove the pits.  Luckily, there was a stand set up near our house selling lychee – so odd, BUT perfect timing! Lychee
  5. Put all ingredients on a tray or into a bowl.Final Product Patriotic Fruit Salad

You’re done!  You could always swap out the watermelon for strawberries or raspberries (but then you wouldn’t have the super cute stars).

    1. Thank you, Sarah! I always like to find a twist to our dishes for the holidays!

  1. What a great salad. I’ve never heard of lychee, but it is perfect to add white to your patriotic salad. I’ll have to give it a try. Is it sweet like a berry?

    1. Thank you, Heidi! There are different types of lychee, but for the most part, they are sweet!
