Watermelon Fruit Bowl Recipe

Prep/Total 20 min.


1 whole seedless watermelon

8-10 cups seasonal fruits such as:

Strawberries, honeydew melon, cantaloupe, sliced kiwis, blueberries, red and/or green grapes, sliced mangos, pineapple, etc....


Cut a small piece off one side of watermelon. Remove just enough to allow watermelon to sit flat, lengthwise, be careful not to break through rind. Score a line lightly around the top third of the watermelon (the line may be straight or serrated, if desired).

Carefully cut through the line, scoop out flesh from base to use in bowl. Take care to leave rind intact.

Fill bowl with prepared fruit and serve.
