The recipe is very simple and you can easily get the ingredients from fruits and vegetable delivery malaysia. All you need are: one large watermelon, one honeydew melon, one cantaloupe melon, one pint of blueberries, two pints of strawberries, one pound of seedless green grapes and red grapes, half a cup of orange juice, lime juice, lemon juice and half a cup of sugar. 

Step 1: Making The Fruit Basket

Use a large sharp knife and cut a thin slice from either long side of the melon. This will be a flat bottom of the watermelon that will allow the fruit to stay upright without wobbling and letting the fruits and juices fall out. Also, cutting the edges out of the top of the melon will be much easier.

Then came the highlight – place the watermelon on its bottom and use the knife in estimately one inch to the left of the centre and slice the melon completely through. Turn the melon to your liking for a neater cut. Once you get the inside of the watermelon, use a melon baller or a spoon and scoop out the pulps from the top slice until it creates a hollow inside. Save the rolled pulps for later, we need that as a part of the salad. Discard the top (don’t forget to scoop out the pulp too!) and you got your basket.

If you are creative and unleash your inner Da Vinci, carve out the edges of the basket into a galore of V-shaped or zigzag pattern for a more sophisticated look.


Step 2: Making The Salad

Wash the fruits thoroughly. Then, remove any parts of the fruits like the stems and cut them in half such as strawberries and grapes (optional). Scoop out pulps from honeydew and cantaloupe melon into pulps and put it aside along with the watermelon pulps.


Step 3: Making The Juice

Prepare a bowl and combine orange juice, lime juice, lemon juice and sugar. Stir them together until the sugar is dissolved.

Step 4: The Complete Fruit Basket

Mix the fruit pulps with the juice and stir to combine. Place the combination into the fridge and let it chill for 30 minutes. Lastly, place all your fruits into the watermelon basket to your own arrangement and voila, your colorful fruit basket is ready to eat!
