Watermelon Basket

For a dessert you can serve in "fruitful" bowls, fill hollowed-out watermelon halves with slices of papaya, honeydew, and cantaloupe, as well as balls of the watermelon -- all sprinkled with lime zest. Choose from a trio of toppings: Berry sauce with lime and ginger adds flavorful color, coconut brittle lends richness, and pink Hawaiian sea salt supplies savory contrast.
