Friday Recipe: Festive Fourth of July Watermelon Stars

July 02, 2010


Independence Day! As we prepare for picnics, barbecues and neighborhood
celebrations this weekend, the question arises: what to eat?

This simple treat
is healthy, festive and easy as can be. It's fun for kids to help
assemble and for picnic-goers of all ages to enjoy!

Festive Fourth of July Watermelon Stars

  • Watermelon
  • Popsicle sticks
  • Star-shaped cookie cutter

Cut fresh watermelon into one-inch slices. Use the cookie
cutter to cut star-shaped pieces of watermelon. Add a popsicle stick to
each of the watermelon stars. Place on a foil-lined baking sheet, cover
with a sheet of foil, and freeze for one hour.

Happy holiday wishes to you and all your stars!
