Preparation of baskets of watermelon

  1. To prepare the fruit salad in a watermelon basket, start by drawing the lines so as to identify the center of the watermelon , draw the handle starting from the center, thus creating the outline of the basket.
  2. With a thin and long knife, cut the watermelon following the lines without cutting the central part that will act as a handle. Keep the pieces of the pulp aside.
  3. At this point you can start emptying your watermelon. Help yourself with the help of a digger or simply start carving the pulp inside with a knife trying to get squares.
  4. Also carefully empty the part under the handle. Remove the black seeds from the watermelon pulp and if necessary cut it into smaller cubes.
  5. Wash the blueberries and strawberries. Cut the latter into wedges.
  6. Put the fruit inside the watermelon basket, add the sugar and lemon juice. Stir gently and refrigerate until ready to serve.


We advise you to consume the fruit salad within a couple of hours of preparation.
