Fruit Salad Bowl
(If you don’t have 1 or more of these fruits, you can also substitute papaya, kiwi, mandarin oranges, etc. Just mix a colourful variation of your favourites)
1 Cantaloupe, cut in half, seeds removed
½ honeydew melon, seeds removed
250 ml (1 cup) fresh strawberries
250 ml (1 cup) pineapple chunks
250 ml (1 cup) seedless green grapes
1 mango, peeled & cut in cubes
65 ml (¼) cup orange juice
65 ml (¼) cup pineapple juice
30 ml (2 tbsp) fresh lemon juice
6 ml (1 ½ tsp) fresh lemon zest (grated peel)
Combine juices and zest together. Combine the fruits together in a large bowl. Pour the juice blend over the fruits and toss gently to combine. Cover the bowl and refrigerate at least 1 hour to blend flavours, stirring once or twice.
Spoon the fruit mixture into your hollowed out melon shells or pineapple shell. Serve immediately.
You can cut a pineapple down the middle (including the green stuff on top) and remove the pineapple – then use the outer shell for a basket. You can also remove the center from a canteloupe or honey dew melon and fill with the fruit mixture.
