Easter Egg Fruit Salad

It was suggested that I bring something sweet...a cake to the hubs' family Easter gathering.  So, I did both!  The first thing I did was search for inspiration.  I found somewhere that a creative blogger had created an Easter Egg Fruit Salad.  (Sorry I don't recall my inspiration source!)  So, I decided to give that a try.  It was easy and turned out beautifully!


2 pints of Strawberries
1 pint of Blueberries
1 Pineapple
4 Kiwis
1 large oval platter

  • Wash and drain the strawberries.
  • Wash and drain the blueberries.
  • Peel and slice the kiwis.
  • Cut the pineapple into chunks.
  • Gather the fruits together and admire the beautiful vibrant spring-like colors!
  • Bring out the beautiful white ironstone oval platter with the chip on the handle.

  • Start with one of your fruits - I chose the Kiwi - and lay it across the center of the platter in a zig-zag design.  (I wound up quartering the slices so that I could more easily make that zig-zag pattern.)

  • Continue adding fruits to fill the platter holding the zig-zag design as you pile them onto the platter.

      • From any angle it looks like a bright and delicious Easter Egg!

      UPDATE: We are going to my parents' for a belated Easter celebration today and I decided to take Easter Egg Fruit Salad again.  So, here is Take 2 with Madarin oranges instead of Kiwi...
      Which do you think looks prettier?  Which do you think tastes better?  I know I have my opinion!
