Happy 4th of July

I just wanted to post an Independence Day recipe today! This fruit salad is perfect for cookouts and small parties.
.
Red, White, and Blue Fruit Salad
.
You’ll need:
1 can of whipped cream
1 1/2 cups washed, fresh blueberries
1 1/2 cups washed, fresh, and cut strawberries
a large bowl for preparing and one for serving
a large spoon for mixing and one for serving
1 or 2 mint sprig for garnish
.
Gently combine the blueberries and strawberries in a bowl. Add 1 1/2 cup’s worth of whipped cream. Mix carefully. Empty into serving bowl. Garnish with extra whipped cream and mint sprig(s). Chill and serve cold. Enjoy!
.
This recipe is sort of based on a family recipe that we’ve used for Christmas, birthdays, and other holidays. The version we make uses grapes, melon, strawberries, and other fruit. Also, freezing this recipe will make a great frozen dessert.
.
Have a great 4th of July!
