Watermelon basket

    30 min

    This watermelon basket is so easy to make, so pretty to look at and so delicious to eat! As with most fruit salads, it's all about preference so feel free to chuck whatever you fancy in the basket. I've popped down what I used just as a guidance. You'll need a few utensils: 1 melon baller, 2 elastic bands/pieces of string, non-toxic pen, sharp knife and two large bowls. I have also added some photos for guidance.

    Makes: 1 fruit salad

    • 1 perfectly ripe watermelon
    • 400g strawberries, hulled and chilled
    • 150g blueberries, chilled
    • 150g raspberries, chilled
    • 1 kiwi, peeled and carved into a rose (optional) and chilled
    • 1 passion fruit, halved and chilled
    • 1 fresh fig, sliced open and chilled
    • seeds from 1/2 pomegranate
    • 3 fresh mint bows

    Prep:30min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Grab your watermelon and wrap your elastic bands/string around the centre (one horizontal and one vertical). Draw directly along the horizontal line, creating the base, and around 1 inch either side of the vertical line, creating the handle.
    2. Carefully slice out the two chunks and the flesh from underneath the handle; place in one of the bowls and pop in the fridge for your next watermelon craving as you won't be using these.
    3. Use your melon baller to scoop out all of the watermelon flesh and place in a bowl. There will be a lot of excess watermelon juice however I kept it in there - personal preference to drain away or not. Begin constructing your basket with the melon balls and your prepped fruit from earlier, again, completely down to preference on how you do this, but use the photos for guidance if you fancy!
