Fruit Salad in Watermelon Bowl

Yum
This is the last of my summer dishes before I dive into all the fall dishes I am excited to show you.  I made this fruit salad simply because I bought a mini watermelon that I thought was so cute. Looking at the watermelon, I decided also that it would make the perfect bowl.  I used the Good Cook melon baller, zester and juicers to make a quick and party ready fruit bowl.  You can add any fruit into the fruit salad as you wish... the watermelon is a must if you want to display it as the bowl.


Ingredients:
Small seedless watermelon
Pineapple
grapes
cantaloupe
**Any fruit you desire

Dressing:
Juice of lemon
Zest of lemon
agave or honey (if desired)
mint (optional) Recommended Good Cook tool:                                             Citrus Zester   
                                                     Citrus Reamer
                                                      Melon Baller


Directions:
Cut a base for your watermelon bowl. Cut watermelon so you have a large bowl shape. Then use melon baller to scoop out watermelon.
Add all fruits into separate bowl and mix with dressing. Place back into watermelon.  Serve immediately or chill. Enjoy.

  14. You should have shared the process of cutting the bowl and dressing it. I have to know because it will be my first thing to try in the kitchen. Thanks anyways for giving me the idea.

    1. Fin, To cut the bowl: 1: Wash the watermelon completely. 2. Cut a small bit off the bottom to create a base (pictured above in a photo). 3. Cut off the top 1/3 of watermelon to create the bowl. Use a melon baller to scoop out the flesh of watermelon until you have an empty bowl shape. 3. Fill with fruit. To create the skewers, just alternate the cut fruit on a wooden skewer and place inside the bowl. Hope that helps.
