1 watermelon
1 bunch grapes
1 pt. strawberries, hulled and cut in half
1/2 pineapple, peeled, cored, and cubed
1 honeydew melon or cantaloupe, seeded, with the flesh scooped out into balls (using a melon baller)
4 Tbsp. orange juice
1 tsp. sugar (try Florida Crystals brand)

• Cut the watermelon into the shape of a basket by cutting it almost in half, lengthwise, leaving a band in the center to create the handle. Cut zigzags into the edges of the basket to decorate.
• Using a melon baller, carefully scoop out the watermelon flesh.
• In a large bowl, combine the watermelon balls, grapes, strawberries, pineapple, melon balls, and orange juice. Mix until the fruit is covered with orange juice. Sprinkle with the sugar and gently mix.
• Place the fruit salad into the watermelon basket.
