Are you ready for the holiday weekend? We sure are! Weâ€™ve got some recipes up our sleeves that we only make for our annual Fourth of July barbecue, including our famous nutty fruit salad. Give it a whirl this year!
Start by chopping one red apple and one green apple into bite-sized pieces. Put the apples into a large bowl and add about 1 cup each of red grapes, blueberries and hulled strawberries. Drain a jar of red maraschino cherries and add them to the bowl, as well. Sprinkle 1 cup of walnut pieces on top of the fruit.
Stir a dash of nutmeg and about Â½ tsp. of vanilla extract into 4 cups of whipped cream. Gently fold the whipped cream into the fruit. Cover the bowl and refrigerate the nutty fruit salad until serving.
Of course, you can throw in just about any fruit or nut you desire. Pineapple, oranges and peaches are also scrumptious in this dish, as are toasted slivered almonds.
