American Flag Fruit Skewers




I enjoy entertaining and even when we don't have guests, I love to serve foodies with an unique presentation.  
 I have been seeing all the different Flag Kabobs everywhere and decided to try it for the Fourth of July. 
  This is easy just takes a little time:))

All you need is:
9 wooden skewers
2 bananas
1 half pint of blue berries
1 pint of strawberries

Slice the bananas into 3/4 inch slices, stem and cut strawberries in half lengthwise.   To begin, thread 6 blueberries on a skewer, followed by a banana slice, strawberry half, banana slice and finishing up with a strawberry half.  Repeat this for the next three skewers (total of four).   For the next five skewers starting with a strawberry half, and ending with a strawberry half alternate the banana slices and strawberry halves.  (total of 3 banana slices and 4 strawberry halves per skewer)

Arrange on a platter or tray and adjust the position of your fruit slices to even out the stripes:))

Serve at your next Fourth of July Party!
