Pop Art Watermelon
Recipe Intro From lisathompson

Serve up a platter of this refreshing (and adorable) watermelon for your guests this summer! Use an assortment of mini cookie cutters or the back of a large piping tip to punch out shapes in slices of juicy watermelon, melon, and dragon fruit, then mix and match by shape and color. You can serve as-is, or you can kick it up a notch with fresh lime juice, chili salt, and sprigs of mint for a dish that's perfect for a summer appetizer or dessert! I love this unique yellow watermelon (which tastes exactly the same as it's red counterpart), but if you can't find it feel free to swap with the classic. Tip: after cutting out shapes, you can cut the remaining fruit off the rind and freeze it for summery smoothies!


Prep time 20mins


  • 1 mini watermelon, cut into 1/2" thick triangles
  • 1 mini yellow watermelon, cut into 1/2" thick triangles (optional)
  • 1 fresh dragon fruit, cut into 1/2" thick rounds
  • 1 ripe honeydew melon, cut into 1/2" thick slices
  • 1 ripe cantaloupe, cut into 1/2" thick slices
  • Big Sur Outlaw Salt, (optional)
  • Lime wedges, (optional)
  • Fresh mint leaves, (optional)


  • Step 1

    Punch out shapes in the fruit, then mix and match to fill the watermelon slices with the cut-outs. Arrange watermelon slices on a platter (along with any extra cut-outs) with a sprinkle of chili salt, a squeeze of lime juice, and fresh mint leaves, if desired.
