Choose one of these fruits or veggies:

  • 1 small seedless watermelon
  • 1 kiwi fruit
  • 1 fat seedless cucumber
  • 1 fat carrot
  • 1 jicama
  • Any other fruit or vegetable you think will cut into cool shapes
  • A selection of small flower or star-shaped cookie cutters


Remove skin from watermelon or kiwi (leave it on the cucumber, carrot or jicama). Cut your choice of fruit or veggie into slices about 1/3-inch-thick. Using your cookie cutter, cut each slice into a shape. Chill until ready to use. Those little bits and pieces left over are great tucked into yogurt or chicken salad.

Special notes:

This works great for cheeses slices as well!
