  • Bamboo, wooden or other disposable skewers (such as plastic), see shopping tip
  • ½ small watermelon, cantaloupe or honeydew melon for the base
  • Strawberries, hulled
  • Cantaloupe chunks
  • Pineapple chunks
  • Honeydew melon chunks
  • Grapes
  • Blueberries


  • If using wooden or bamboo skewers, make sure all the splinters are off of them by rolling two together in your hands, or rub them over each other, as if you are sharpening a knife.
  • Cut the fruit that is not already small into 1-inch or bite-size, chunks.
  • This recipe is very flexible…As shown in the photo, I first skewered a strawberry, next 2 blueberries, then watermelon, next 2 grapes, cantaloupe, 2 blueberries and ending with another strawberry.
  • Important Tips: Just be sure to stick to fruits that don’t brown so quickly such as grapes, watermelon, cantaloupe, strawberries, pineapple and blueberries. For the base I used ½ of a small watermelon but you can use any melon you like. In addition, be sure to leave a few inches at the bottom of the skewers so they’re easier to insert and do not make the melon shell top heavy.
  • Just remember, there is no set way to create your kebabs…Have fun with a variety of fruits.
