Total Time

Prep: 15 min. + chilling

"Kids love these cantaloupe wedges filled with fruit-flavored gelatin and fresh strawberries. Even guests are impressed with this colorful dish," says Jillian Surman of Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin. "For different looks, I experiment with other combinations of melons, gelatin and fruit."

Ingredients

  • 1 large cantaloupe
  • 1 package (3 ounces) strawberry banana gelatin
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 cup sliced fresh strawberries

Directions

  1. Cut melon in half lengthwise from bud to stem end; discard seeds. Cut a thin slice off the bottom of each half so melon sits level; pat dry.
  2. In a large bowl, dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Stir in applesauce and strawberries. Pour into melon halves (discard any remaining gelatin mixture or save for another use).
  3. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Just before serving, slice each melon half into 3 wedges.
