Whooo’s ready for Halloween? No tricks here – just a sweet owl of a makeover to a typical fruit platter. It’s sure to be the hit of the party!
1 pineapple, cut in quarters with stem removed
1 orange, cut in half
1 cup fresh blueberries
2 pints fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
2 cups grapes
1 red apple, sliced
1 lemon, halved
Remove flesh from pineapple slices, and cut flesh into cubes. Reserve one slice, and place, cut side down (rough side facing you), on a large serving tray. Place oranges at one end, and add a blueberry to the center of each orange to form the owl’s eyes. Arrange pineapple chunks, blueberries, strawberries and grapes around the pineapple to form the rest of the owl’s body and head. Rub apple slices with lemon juice, and arrange apple on either side of the owl’s body for wings and between the eyes for feathers. Scoop out remaining pulp from lemon, and discard. Using kitchen shears, cut a small strip from around the edge of the lemon; fold in half to make a beak. Cut Vs around the end of the lemon, and place the lemon halves on the bottom of the owl as feet.
