Red, White, and Blue Fruit Salad
Create a fun and festive fruit salad for the Fourth with this easy recipe. The natural colors of the fruit are perfect for a patriotic dish that everyone will enjoy.
3 cups white fruit (pears, apples, banana, white peaches, honeydew), cut up
3 cups red fruit (watermelon, cherries, strawberries, raspberries), cut up
2 cups fresh, frozen, or canned blueberries, washed thoroughly
2 cups plain, fat free yogurt
Cool Whip Free
Blue paste-style food coloring (optional)
- If used canned blueberries, place them in a colander and rinse of the syrup or it will turn your entire salad purple.
- Combine all fruits and let them sit in fridge for an hour.
- Fold in yogurt. It will mix with the juices in the bottom of the bowl which will sweeten it.
- Add enough to cover the fruit but not bury it. Spoon into individual bowls and top with a spoon of fat free Cool Whip topping.
Optional, stir a small amount of blue food coloring into the topping before serving. It has to be the paste style you get at the cake decorating supply, otherwise you make the topping watery. Use the flat end of a toothpick as a spatula to put paste in topping. The color is intense. Add it a little at a time. If you want Navy blue, you may be able to find it or you can add a very tiny amount of black paste after you get the blue as dark as you can.
