Fruit Salad Spewing Watermelon Jack-the-Lantern

    30 minutes

    This is a healthy and seasonal approach to an Australian Halloween. I love the mint in the fruit salad which matches the watermelon really well and gives it a fresh taste.

    • 1 watermelon

    1. Draw the jack-the-lantern face on the watermelon, the mouth needs to be big enough to scoop out the watermelon flesh in large chucks so it can be diced. When happy with the design, cut out the face.
    2. Wash all the fruit and pat dry. Dice the apple and about a third of the watermelon. Quarter the strawberries, and divide the mandarins into segments.
    3. Pull the leaves off the handful of mint, wash then thinly slice or dice.
    4. Combine all the fruit and mint in a bowl then refrigerate until ready to serve.
    5. To serve, place the carved watermelon on the back of a plate and then spew the fruit salad out of the mouth and over the front of the plate.
