This is a clever way to present fruit in creative ways, which hopefully means you and your kids will eat more of it! There are endless possibilities here from savoury appetizers involving feta, mint and lime juice, to fruit salad ideas like the above. Here are slices of watermelon with shredded coconut masquerading as grated cheese, and toppings of blueberries and kiwi fruit. You can also try slices of peach, banana (soaking it in lemon juice first to prevent oxidisation) or cherries and grapes.
Do check that your watermelon is red inside, as many are yellow in Hong Kong. And do try to buy whole ones rather than cut segments, as there is less chance of bacteria getting in before you do…
What you need:
2 kiwi fruit
100g shredded coconut
Take time to cut perfect whole slices of watermelon, shaving bits off to make them the right height.
Scatter with the shredded coconut, blueberries and slices of fruit.
