This simple Red White & Blue Fruit Salad Recipe with Citrus Vinaigrette allows your to bring a little patriotic flair to your next get together without a lot of prep work.
Summer, grilling season, and family time is well under way now. This summer is passing by more quickly than I’d like it to and the upcoming week that I thought was so far away just two months ago, is now upon us.
My cousin Kasey and her family are coming down to visit and stay with us for the first time ever this coming week. When we started talking about their visit, they let us know that the 4th of July was their favorite holiday and implied we were on the hook for making it epic.
I don’t know if we can possibly achieve epic standards, but we’re definitely going to try! I’ve been experimenting with small things we can do to make the day patriotic and special and came up with this recipe! It’s red white and blue and even has stars! Our family loves it and hopefully this Patriotic Fruit Salad recipe will make a fun statement on the 4th of July!
