Watermelons are an amazing thing. Sugary without being heavy, refreshing without any citrus, and incredibly low in calories, they also have one other thing going for them: the rind is perfect to make a variety of carvings for an amazing fruit bowl.

This one is in the shape of a rabbit, ideal for spring and summer! With a bit of patience, and by pre-planning your cuts with a food safe marker, you can make this beauty without a whole lot of experience (although having a backup watermelon on hand never hurts). Plus, the process will definitely take you back to your art class days in elementary school! Once it’s all carved out, toss the cut watermelon with a bunch of berries and transfer to the watermelon bowl for a decadent, flavorful fruit salad that will wow your friends, family, and coworkers. Enjoy!
