Fruit Flag for the 4th of July

We'll show you a few more good ideas for tasteful red, white, and blue food later today, but here's a first look: a patriotically-arranged fruit platter.

We spotted this over at Flickr, and we thought it was a tasteful, pretty, and delicious way to bring a little patriotic flair to your Independence Day table. It's very easy too: Just arrange blueberries, bananas, and strawberries on skewers. Maybe with a flag in front of you for reference!

What's the best red, white, and blue dessert you've ever seen?
