  • To prepare watermelon basket, cut a thin slice from bottom of the melon so it will sit flat, being careful not to cut through rind to melon.
  • With pencil and a 1-1/2 inch wide cardboard guide, draw scallop design about 1/3 of the way down from the top of the melon. On top 1/3, mark handle.
  • With sharp paring knife, carefully cut watermelon to create scallops and handle; Remove top sections.
  • Scoop melon into balls or wedges, reserving 6 to 8 cups for fruit basket. (Refrigerate remaining melon for other use.)
  • Leave shell 1-inch thick. Wrap watermelon basket in plastic wrap; refrigerate until ready to serve. Fill with fresh fruit just before serving.


TIPS: * Vary the fruit shapes and colors for an attractive salad. Include balls, spears, cubes, and triangles. * To use the most melon pulp, cut chunks or cubes rather than melon balls. Use grapes, cherries, and strawberries for round shapes. * Blueberries and raspberries are best used as a garnigh, since they are fragile and bruise easily when tossed with other fruits. * Sprinkle bananas, apples, and peaches with orange or lemon juice to prevent discoloration. About 30 calories per serving.
