"Have a great summer party with watermelon salad inside its rind. Scoop out the watermelon, add other fruits, put it back in, and you have a personal-sized salad for each person!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 (15 ounce) can
canned diced pineapple in juice, drain juice and reserve
apples - peeled, cored and chopped
bananas, cut into bite-size pieces
What a great idea! I used fresh pineapple, and cooled the salad before serving. Refreshing and full of vitamins!
The photo depicts a three-melon salad, not one with canned pineapple, apples and bananas. Boo, hiss. If I made this salad, I would use lemon on the apples and bananas, fresh pineapple, and simmer down the fruit juices with mint for additional flavor.
Cutting the watermelon is a challenge to be sure, but the flavor of cold watermelon and the great presentation is so worth it. Add a little mint and a dash of salt give it a brighter flavor. I left out the bananas, as they tend to get a little too mushy for my taste. Great, refreshing and delicious fruit bowl. B.J.
Its hard too cut the 'watermelon bowl'...
maybe just put in a bowl...
Wow, this brings back sooooo many memories! I remember my mom making this for pretty much every summer function. She never added the apples or bananas tho, but she did add honeydew, cantaloupe and strawberries. You really could use any combination of fruit that you like. The watermelon 'basket' makes such a pretty presentation.
If you want a smaller version to sit on many tables, do the same thing with 1/2 of a fresh pineapple.
Very nice recipe!!!! I love it!
Left out the bananas and made in large bowl to divide for DH to take to work. Wonderful hot weather treat to help keep him cool. Thanks!
