This Italian fruit salad is topped with whipped cream and dark chocolate shavings.
- 1 lb watermelon
- ½ melon
- 1 tablespoon raisins
- ½ tablespoon sugar
- ¾ oz walnuts
- 1 half cup Cherry liqueur
- 3 ½ oz whipped cream
- 1 ¾ oz currants
- 1 oz dark chocolate
Cut the melon in half and remove the seeds. Then, using a spoon or melon baller, scoop out many balls.
Repeat to make watermellon balls. Place melon and watermelon balls together in a bowl.
Sprinkle the balls with sugar and immediately drizzle with the maraschino liqueur, then place the bowl in the refrigerator.
Meanwhile, chop the walnuts and then rehydrated the raisins by soaking them in a small bowl of cold water for 5 minutes or until soft. Then drain and squeeze.
When the melon and watermelon balls are cool, remove the bowl from the refrigerator and mix in the raisins and walnuts.
In a separate bowl, whip the cold cream using an electric whisk or by hand.
Divide the fruit salad between 4 cups or martini glasses.
Garnish with the whipped cream, sprinkle with dark chocolate shavings and currants and serve immediately.
