Expert Tips

Peel and dice the fruits beforehand to save time when assembling the brochettes.

Just thinking about watermelon makes my mouth water. It’s one of our favorite fruits at home. We love to eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner, or as a refreshing snack. We also love to include it in salads, aguas frescas, with chile, lemon and salt or in a fruit cocktail. I usually buy it and slice it right away so it’s ready in my fridge. That saves me some time while cooking because with just opening the fridge I can offer a quick snack for my kids. A fun and delicious way to eat watermelon is in skewers. The best part? Your kids get to help you prepare them: they can choose other fruits to combine it with or what dip to use. Here’s the recipe I use.

If you want your skewers to be less sweet, you can replace the dips with chile, lemon and salt.

Use seasonal fruits like mango, melon, strawberries, bananas, etc.

Directions

  • 1 For the skewers: Peel and dice the watermelon in 3-centimeter cubes. Peel and dice the jicama in 2x3-centimeter rectangles. Peel and dice the pineapple in triangles. Place the blueberries in a dish.
  • 2 Grab one skewer at a time and start inserting the fruits, combining them. I for one did one with watermelon and blueberries, another of watermelon and jimaca and one of watermelon and pineapple, and so on.
  • 3 For the dips: In a small glass bowl, pour the honey. In another bowl, mix the yogurt with the apricot jam. These two dips are for those who want an extra sweet kick!
  • 4 Serve immediately.
