Fruit Basket

Here's a cute way to spruce up your BBQ. You can add any fruit you like to it. The more color the better! They are so easy to make.  Get creative and have some fun!

Fruit Basket

1 watermelon
other fruits such as berries, cantaloupe, honey do grapes etc

First- slice the top half of the watermelon like this taking off the top 1/3.  Leaving at least an inch in the center for the handle.  (you can leave the handle off)

Hollow out the melon, including the piece under the handle.  Be careful with the handle, it will be very fragile. I like to use a spoon to hollow it out.  It also looks really cute to use a melon baller so that all of the pieces are the exact same size.  It doesn't have to be perfect, because you are going to fill it with fruit. 

To add some character... cut a v shape out of the entire edge giving it a decorative look.

Fill with your favorite fruit and serve chilled.
