Watermelon Bowl

Serves 6-8

1small round watermelon

Fruit Salad:

1 mango, peeled and cut into pieces

6 ounces blueberries

1 pear, cored and cut into pieces

1 apple, cored and cut into small pieces

1 small cantaloupe, cut into small pieces

1 orange, peeled and cut into small segments

Watermelon cut into small pieces

2 teaspoons Amaretto, optional


  1. Cut zigzags into the upper third of the watermelon.  Cut the top of the watermelon into pieces and pull out the parts you have cut so only the zigzag is left. Hollow out the watermelon with a sharp knife, leaving a good thickness for the watermelon bowl.  Cut the watermelon into bite size pieces and place in bowl.

  2. Add rest of fruit to bowl. If desired, add 2 teaspoons of Amaretto to fruit salad. Gently mix together.  Refrigerate until you serve.

  3. Purée any leftovers into a smoothie!

1. Use any fruit you like to make the fruit salad.

2. Place toothpicks into the fruit for easy serving.
