Fruit Skewers Recipe

Here’s what you need:

Here’s the prep:

  • Wash the grapes and strawberries
  • Cut the tops off the strawberries
  • Ball the melons

For each skewer, I recommend this order:

  1. Melon (alternate green and orange)
  2. Red grape
  3. Strawberry
  4. Melon (alternate green and orange)
  5. Red grape

Hint: Melon balls don’t always come out perfectly round. Skewer the melon so that the flat side is toward the grape, and it will be less obvious.

My mother suggests a light drizzle of honey as a finishing touch. I suspect that’s important if the fruit isn’t at its peak of ripeness / sweetness. I didn’t find it necessary for the platter pictured here. We’re getting fantastic melon and strawberries right now in Northern California, so your milage may vary.
