Star-Spangled Fruit Kebabs
Stand each apple vertically on a cutting board. Cut two 1/2-inch-thick slices on either side of the core. Discard the slice with the core. Use a 3-inch star cookie cutter to cut out 12 stars from the apple slices (save scraps for another use, see Tip). Place the apple stars in a shallow dish and add orange juice; soak for 10 minutes (this will help keep the apples from browning).Advertisement
Meanwhile, cut watermelon into 1/2-inch-thick slices; use the cookie cutter to cut 24 watermelon stars (save scraps for another use, see Tip).
Alternate 2 watermelon stars, 1 apple star and 6 blueberries on each of 12 skewers.
To make ahead: Refrigerate kebabs for up to 2 hours.
Equipment: Twelve 10-or 12-inch wood or metal skewers, 3-inch star-shaped cookie cutter
Tip: Don't throw away the fruit scraps after cutting out the stars! Use the extra pieces to make fruit salad, a smoothie or even applesauce.
