4th of July Fruit Flag

“This is quick and easy and very festive to make just before a party or picnic. For ultimate freshness, prepare this treat right before serving. Present it with toothpicks for spearing the fruit and a bowl of your favorite dip, if desired. One variation is to cook crescent rolls in a 8" by 13" pan, covered with cream cheese, then topped with the fruit. Another used a white tray, and this would be good on a 8" by 13" cake too. Feel free to use your imagination!To see what this looks like go to http://familyfun.go.com/4th-of-july/4th-of-july-recipes/patriotic-picnic-ideas/fruit-flag-686767/.”

Directions

  1. Hull and halve 29 large strawberries and set them aside.
  2. Arrange 30 large blackberries in the upper left corner of a serving tray or cutting board (it should be at least 8 by 13 inches).
  3. Cut 58 banana slices, 3/4-inch-thick, into a bowl. Sprinkle on lemon juice and toss the slices gently with a rubber spatula to keep them from browning.
  4. Assemble the banana slices in rows to resemble a flag and top each slice with a strawberry half.
