Summer Celebration Fruit Bowls
1 medium watermelon
1 pound jicama, peeled and cut into ½-inch dice (5 cups)
2 cucumbers, peeled, seeded, and cut into ½-inch dice (2 cups)
2 cups strawberries, trimmed
¼ cup fresh mint, roughly chopped
¼ cup fresh lime juice
½ pinch Tajin Seasoning or chili powder for dusting (optional)
Cut the watermelon in half, and use a melon baller to scoop out about 7 cups of melon balls. Next, scoop out the melon scraps and clean the watermelon halves. Cut a small slice off the base of each half so they can stand upright as serving bowls.
Cut the cantaloupe in half; scoop out the seeds. Use a melon baller to scoop out the cantaloupe into balls. Clean the inside of the cantaloupe shells, and slice off the base so they can stand as serving bowls.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the melon balls, jicama, cucumber, strawberries, mint, and lime juice; toss well.
Transfer the mixture into the prepared melon bowls, and refrigerate until ready to serve.
Before serving, lightly sprinkle Tajin or chili powder (if using) over fruit bowls.
