  • cutting board
  • knife

Ingredients

  • 1 watermelon
  • 1 white canary melon or other white fleshed fruit or vegetable
  • 24 oz fresh blueberries
  • 12 oz fresh blackberries
  • 1 lb red grapes

Instructions

  • Remove green rind from watermelon and cut watermelon flesh into bite-sized pieces. Place in the bottom of your large clear bowl OR set aside to assemble flag on large tray.
  • Wash and dry grapes and remove from stem. Add to watermelon pieces in the bowl or tray.
  • Remove rind from white canary melon and slice the melon into large flat pieces. Use star-shaped fruit cutter to cut into stars. Set aside to assemble flag tray or place 3/4 of the pieces on top of the watermelon in your large clear bowl.
  • Wash and dry blueberries and blackberries. Place on top of white melon pieces in large bowl or set aside to assemble flag tray.

Do horizontal red stripes with watermelon and grapes, white stripes with canary melon, and a blue rectangle in the left top corner with blueberries and blackberries. Top the blue area with several white stars and serve!

Notes

If you have trouble finding a white melon like a canary melon use other white fruits or vegetables such as pears, apples, jicama, white nectarines, or white peaches.
