Watermelon Sailboats

Great for beginners!

  • 1 seedless watermelon
  • 1 quart fresh blueberries, rinsed and picked over for stems and leaves
  • 2 cups Grape Nuts or similar breakfast cereal

Make a 3 inch by 3 inch square log approximately 6-8 inches long by cutting off the ends and sides of the watermelon (save the unused watermelon to snack on or puree for a refreshing drink).

Slice the log into 3/4 inch thick squares. Cut the squares diagonally to form right triangles.

Puree the blueberries. Spread the blueberry puree on a serving platter imitating a pond or lake. Sprinkle the cereal around the edge of the blueberry puree like sand or pebbles at the "water's" edge. Float the triangles of watermelon upright on a short side like sailboats on the water moving in the same direction. Serve immediately.


Makes 4-6 servings.
