Yummy Mini Watermelons
What You'll Need
2 baby cucumbers
Chunk of watermelon heart- preferably dense and bright with minimal seed-pittingr
Pinch of black (toasted) sesame seeds)
How to Make It
1 Begin by trimming the ends of the cucumbers, then cut a 2″ piece off each end.
2 Set the middle section aside for other use (salads, etc).
3 Stand each half-round piece on its end and use the small end of a melon baller to scoop a half-sphere out of each.
4 Use the same technique to carve identical pieces out of the watermelon heart, and fit them into the cucumber, flat side up.
5 If it doesn’t sit flush, you can carefully trim the excess with a paring knife.
6 Finish by pressing a moist finger to the black sesame seeds and using it to scatter them on the surface of the melon.
You will need a melon baller and sharp knife.
