Fruit Salad in Watermelon

On the 4th of July holiday, we were invited to a BBQ in Downtown San Diego near the harbor. It was at a condo with a spectacular view of San Diego Bay. Since it was quite hot that day, I made this simple, yet so refreshing salad for the bbq. I didn't add bananas only because they tend to turn brown and it's not quite appetizing. Also, depending on how sweet your fruit is, you may not need to add the watermelon sauce, but it's up to you. Enjoy!

  • 1 Watermelon
  • 1 Cantaloupe or Afghani Melon
  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • 1 can of pineapple chunks, drained
  • 1 can of fruit salad cocktail, drained

Cut a large watermelon in half lengthwise, scallop edges if you want it to look pretty. Scoop out watermelon with a melon baller. Return balls to hollow shell. Add cantaloupe balls, strawberries, blueberries, pineapple chunks, and fruit cocktail. Pour sauce over fruits and mix well. Chill, covered. This is great for barbecues.


  • 2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp. fresh orange juice
  • 4 tbsp. honey

Mix together ingredients together and pour over fruit salad.

    I was doing a search for eggplant parmigiana babies and came across your site. Holy Schmolie! My mouth is watering as I write this! Haha! I do the web site for Scalini's and Provino's Italian Restaurants. My wife's dad, John, started both Italian restaurants over 30 years ago. When you get a chance, visit my wife's web site THANKS for the wonderful food!!!
