Watermelon Basket with Fruit Salad

This was my first attempt at making something out of the actual rind of the watermelon...I was very pleased with myself!!

Watermelon Basket with Fruit Salad

Ingredients:

1 Oblong Watermelon
Cantaloupe
Blueberries

Directions:

Using an oblong watermelon, slice 1/4 inch off the bottom lengthwise to provide a stable base. Use a pencil to draw lines for handle placement and basket opening. Cut the handle first, then make zig-zag cuts with a paring knife, all the way through the rind (be careful not to cut through handle base on either side) Use an ice cream scoop to remove flesh from inside of basket and cut scoop quarters for the fruit salad. Place in basket. Use a melon baller to cut into cantaloupe. Toss in with watermelon pieces. Add blueberries and attach some on toothpicks to handle for a decoration.
