Fluttering Butterfly Fruit Salad

Flutter from spring into summer with a fruit platter that is sure to please!

 

Ingredients

4 cups cubed cantaloupe

2 cup cubed honey dew

2 cups cubed pineapple

1 small kiwi cut into rings

1 ½ cups red seedless grapes

4 large strawberries, sliced lengthwise

½ cup blueberries

2 jumbo marshmallows

2 mini chocolate chips

1 red Twizzler

On a large platter, arrange cantaloupe and pineapple into 4 piles, two at the top and two at the bottom, to resemble butterfly wings.  Arrange honey dew, grapes and kiwi in the center of the wings for the body.  Use watermelon, blueberries and strawberries to outline the wings.  Place the two marshmallows at the top of the plate, and press the chips into their centers for eyes.  Peel off small pieces of the Twizzler, and shape into antenna and a smile.  Press these onto the plate to complete the butterfly’s face.

Tip:  I covered the platter tightly with plastic wrap first.  This kept the fruit juice from staining the platter and made clean-up easy.  Using pre-cut fruit speeds prep time.
