Red, White and Blue Fruit Salad

Red, White and Blue Fruit Salad

Celebrate Independence Day with this patriotic-hued, light, yet luscious dessert. Serve it family-style by bringing the fruit and cashew cream to the table in separate bowls. Or dish the fruit into individual bowls, cups or wine glasses and top with the cream.

  • 2 pitted dates (about 1 1/2 ounces), roughly chopped
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pound strawberries, hulled and halved
  • 11 ounces blueberries
