Cookie Cutter Fruit Salad

  • A few weeks ago I saw a really cute idea on pinterest for a cookie cutter fruit salad. The picture was little stars cut of of watermelon mixed with blueberries for the 4th of July.

    Last weekend my sister-in-law graduated from the University of Kansas and we had a little reception at our place afterward. Their mascot is the Jayhawk, so I got a Jayhawk shaped cookie cutter to cut out the watermelon. 
    Kansas’ school colors are red and blue so I used watermelon, blueberries and strawberries for the salad. 
    The only thing I would change next time is that I would get a smaller cookie cutter so that all the fruit is more simmilar in size.

    1 seedless watermelon
    Blueberries
    Strawberries, quartered
    Other fruit (optional)
    Wash fruit. Slice the watermelon into rounds. Use cookie cutter to cut out shapes and put everything in a serving bowl. 
    This would be something fun {and healthy!}to make with kiddos! Also, you could make this for different holidays. Here are a few ideas: St. Patrick’s Day-use green honeydew melon and cut out four leaf clovers. Halloween-use orange cantalope and cut out jack-o-lanters. Christmas-use watermelon and cut out santa hats and put a dab of whipped cream on the end for the ball at the end of the hat. There are lots of things you could do. And just like I did here, you could use your team colors for school spirit!
