This recipe was born when we were hosting the Fourth of July and wanted to take the fruit salad we love and make it feel more American. We’ve found unique ingredients that complement each other in an amazing symphony of flavours. Fresh fruit, salty cheese, and sweet honey are enough to make your mouth water! This will definitely be a hit at any occasion.

Ingredient notes

Red, white and blue salad ingredients on the table.


  • Seedless watermelon: You can also use cookie cutters or watermelon balls to add more fun to your salad.
  • Strawberry: Look to be as mature as possible.


  • Vita collapsed: This salty agent adds a creamy texture and enhances other flavors. Cheese and fruit are just a perfect match!


  • Blueberries and blackberries: Make sure the berries are as ripe as possible.

And the rest

  • pineapple: The cookie cutter can be used to make star-shaped pieces or simply cut them into bite-sized cubes.
  • Fresh mint: Refreshing and light mint is perfect for the summer heat.
  • honey: This is another flavor element and sticky sweetness. You don’t have to use it, but we love the extra sweetness and texture.
  • Lemon juice: This adds brightness to the salad and another layer of flavor.

Pineapple slices

Delicious pineapple takes the stage to bring the stars of our flag in the colors red, white and blue. Once cut into small pieces, you can use a cookie cutter to create the famous star shape.

Even if you choose to cut them into bite-sized cubes, they still represent our bright beginnings.
