Patriotic Fruit Tray

It’s hard to believe that Fourth of July is next week. Cookouts and Bbq’s are on everyone’s agenda and it’s always great to show up with a fun and festive dish. Enter the classic fruit tray! Berries and stone fruit are in season and just so conveniently match the red and blue Americana color scheme.

Luckily, the price on fruit during the summer is stellar and it doesn’t cost a fortune to put a fresh tray of fruit together. It’s always nice to have something refreshing to munch on when it’s hot out.

What are your 4th of July plans?
