Alphabet Fruit

Inspired by Alphabet Soup, make a sweet statement that’s fun to eat with this fruit salad.

Firm fruit like cantaloupe, coconut, and pineapple
Mini ABC cookie cutters

Slice the fruit into ½-inch-thick pieces.

Use cookie cutters to create a mix of letters from the fruit slices.

Carefully pop out the cut fruit with a butter knife or skewer.

Chill and serve within 24 hours.

Tip: You can also make use of the piece left from the cutout by filling it with Jell-O!
