They are also relatively easy to make, which is perfect if you’re looking for Memorial Day recipes for a crowd if you decide on a last-minute BBQ.

Instructions:

  • Cut the bananas into 1 to 1 1/2 inch pieces (you will need about 32 pieces).
  • Cut the strawberries into 1 to 1 1/2 inch piece (again, you need about 32 pieces).
  • Start by placing 6 blueberries on the top of 4 wooden skewers.
  • Finish those skewers, layering a banana and strawberry 3 times.
  • Take the remaining 4 skewers, and start layering the bananas and strawberries, 5 time each, so it matches up with the other skewers.
