Fruit salad is a favourite in our house, if I have the time I like to make it special, by making the watermelon into a basket! You can make it simple or fancy, its a nice gift as well if your invited over for a summer dinner with friends or if your having guests over, what a way to impress them! Its actually easy to make and doesn’t take much time either. Make sure to have a small sharp knife to be able to cut through the watermelon.
First I cut out the water melon in half and then cut the edges as shown in picture. In this one I left a ‘handle’ so that it resembles a basket.
I used peaches, cantaloupe, bananas, and watermelon. If your using bananas squeeze some lemon juice on them to prevent browning.
Tip: Clean watermelon, cantaloupe and honey dew with soap and water and rinse well, I like to spray vinegar on it as well, to help prevent any potential bacteria touching the flesh of the fruit.
Watermelons, cantaloupe and honey dew, may come in contact with bacteria when growing in the fields or during transportation.
In this salad I used cherries, strawberries,bananas, pineapple and watermelon.
