Rainbow Fruit Skewers: Fruit Salad on a Stick!

Throwing a casual kids birthday here in NYC is not always easy. We want to do something outside so we’ll be setting up in a local park. That also means that our party needs to be portable, though we still want to have a great spread and fun decorations. So when I saw these rainbow fruit skewers I knew I’d hit the jackpot. Doubling as a colorful centerpiece, these gorgeous treats are easy to make and totally portable. And since they’re on a stick, there’s no fumbling around with plates and forks.

Rainbow Fruit Skewers
makes 12 skewers

12 raspberries
6 orange segments (from 1 large orange), cut in half
12 1″ chunks of pineapple
1 large kiwi, peeled and cut into 12 1″ chunks
24 large blueberries
12 red seedless grapes*

Lay out 12 bamboo skewers. Prepare your fruit. Slide a raspberry to the top of the stick, next add chunks of orange, pineapple, kiwi, 2 blueberries, and a grape. Repeat for each skewer.

*Note that ripe raspberries can be soft–to secure the tops of the skewers, consider adding a grape on top as well.
