Red White and Blue Fruit Salad is easy.
I’m telling you- this recipe is so easy. Now, if you want to leave out the honey lime glaze you totally can… However, there is something about the sweet and sour glaze on top of this fruit that just makes it extra special. If I had to pick, I would say the bananas taste the best with the glaze, but it is hard to choose. I like to make sure I have some of each in every bite. 🙂 Blueberries, Strawberries and bananas look so pretty in this salad.
We just love all this festive food for 4th of July. I also like to decorate and made this gorgeous Easy to Make Star Shaped 4th of July Wreath. So fun!
