Melon Ball Fruit Salad
Melon ball fruit salads. Are there anything better? Seriously! I didn’t discover this until recently and how incredibly easy it is to do. All you need is a melon baller which you can purchase at Target, Amazon, or any homeware shop. They are cheap and make food super fun to play with 🙂 I personally bought mine while I was traveling this summer and on the boat, so by no means is it something that’s hard to carry with you.
Step 1: Choose your fruit. It works best if you are using watermelon, cantaloupe or other soft fruits that don’t have big seeds. I used a pineapple which was a bit trickier but made for a very pretty layout. Cut your fruit in half and use the baller as you would an ice cream scoop (that’s essentially what it is…just a smaller version).
Step 2: Continue until you’ve finished getting all the little pieces you can. If you are going to use the fruit as a cup, then use a knife and/or spoon to get remaining bits out so your ‘bowl’ is clean.
Step 3: Garnish with other fruits or colorful things such as cherries, blueberries, or chopped mint. Mix and add to your bowl.
And voila! You have an easy, beautiful fruit salad that is far more fun to eat than a normal piece of fruit 🙂
