Watermelon Fruit Bowl Salad

Makes about 20 servings

Preparation Time: 30 minutes

Cooking Time: None!

Ingredients:

1 large seedless watermelon

1 cantaloupe, halved and seeded

1 honeydew melon, halved and seeded

2 cups fresh strawberries, halved

2 cups seedless green grapes

3 cups blueberries

Directions:

  • Using a large, sharp knife, remove the top half of the watermelon.  With a melon baller, scoop out the flesh from inside of the watermelon.  (I like to leave about ½ inch of flesh inside the watermelon shell as I think this adds flavor.) Use the melon baller to scoop out the cantaloupe and honeydew; remove as much fruit as possible and discard the rinds.  Refrigerate the fruits separately until ready to assemble.
  • To serve, place the melon balls and other fruits into the watermelon basket and toss.
  • Tip: If you want to make the watermelon basket fancy, you can use the knife to carve triangles around the edges.  Some people even make handles using the rind and toothpicks.
