DIY: How To Make a Stunning Watermlon Grill With Fruit Kebabs For Your Next BBQ!

sdfdf321313123She Knows

Summertime is when lots of fruits and veggies are at peak ripeness, especially berries and melons. It’s also a time when people eat fresher and tend to favor lighter fare over hot and heavy dishes. One warm weather favored food that tastes delicious and is easy to make is the fruit salad. No picnic or party is complete without one and the yummy salads can be custom made to fit anyone’s taste preferences.

Most people simply cut up a bunch of different fruits and combine them into a large bowl. However, there is a more creative way to present a fruit salad that is perfect for entertaining or when you want to make an eye catching and fun display. It may even draw in children and picky eaters, and get them to eat the salad or try different fruits. The trick is to make a ‘watermelon grill’ that both holds and displays the salad while bringing the dish to a whole new level. It’s fun, neat, and screams summer.

Learn how to construct your own edible watermelon grill by watching the video from YouTube channel SheKnows How To. Start off by cutting 3 holes into the watermelon. Lay the melon on it’s side horizontally and cut off the top one-third section from one end. Scoop out the flesh from inside with a melon baller and place it in a bowl off to the side. Once it’s mostly empty and hollow you can take several wooden skewer sticks and poke them through the top part of the rind, where you sliced it open, to make the grate part of the grill. Make sure that both ends of the skewers go completely through each side of the rind, then trim off any sharp ends that may be poking out the side. Prepare three thick and sturdy stalks of celery which are going to be the grill legs that support and hold up the melon. Cut them in even lengths and poke them into the three holes you created in step one. Now all you have to do is fill up the hollowed melon grill with a fruit salad mix and lay some fruit kebabs across the skewer grate on top, serve, and enjoy!
