Cutting naturally red and white fruits into star shapes to pair on skewers with blueberries makes a fun, patriotic fruit dessert you can feel good about eating and serving to your kids. This red, white and blue fruit "salad" will be a hit at summer barbecues, especially for the Fourth of July.

Preparation

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Stand each apple vertically on a cutting board. Cut two ½-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).
  2. Meanwhile, cut watermelon into ½-inch-thick slices; use the cookie cutter to cut 24 watermelon stars (save scraps for another use, see Tip).
  3. 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.
