 These little bites are festive, fun and tasty.  A great addition to your holiday bbq or picnic. 

Red White and Blue Strawberry Bites

The Festive Foodies are sharing some great 4th of July recipes with you today........

Ellen of Family Around the Table invited us to join her in sharing Red White and Blue recipes in preparation of July 4th, Independence Day here in the USA.  Let's take a look at what everyone created........

 

I have shared many Red White and Blue recipes with you on past holiday posts.  Some of my favorites are this fun Bundt Cake, this gorgeous Patriotic Trifle, a sweet and tasty Fruit Salad and this savory Red White and Blue Cheese Salad.

Today I decided to go the fruit route again.  In my Red White and Blue Fruit Salad I used Strawberries, Blueberries and mini Marshmallows.  I kept the Strawberries and Blueberries but used a Cream Cheese Whipped Cream for the White. Then instead of serving it in Salad form I made these fun little bites that can be eaten with your hands.
