Cutting the watermelon is a challenge to be sure but the flavor of cold watermelon and the great presentation is so worth it. Add a little mint and a dash of salt give it a brighter flavor. I left out the bananas as they tend to get a little too mushy for my taste. Great refreshing and delicious fruit bowl. B.J. Read More

Wow this brings back sooooo many memories! I remember my mom making this for pretty much every summer function. She never added the apples or bananas tho but she did add honeydew cantaloupe and strawberries. You really could use any combination of fruit that you like. The watermelon 'basket' makes such a pretty presentation. Read More

If you want a smaller version to sit on many tables do the same thing with 1/2 of a fresh pineapple. Read More
