Watermelon maple leaves
Trim the watermelon and cut into slices. Using a maple leaf cookie cutter, press out the shapes and place into a bowl. Use wood skewers to display your watermelon maple leaves or toss into a fruit salad.
Strawberries and vanilla yogurt
Whether you make this combination into a yogurt parfait or have strawberries beside a bowl of yogurt for dipping, this is an easy yet yummy festive dessert or snack.
Cherry Tomato, Basil and Bocconcini cheese skewers
Thread a cherry tomato, a basil leaf and a mini bocconcini cheese ball onto skewers. If desired, drizzle with balsamic vinegar and olive oil or leave it plain for a fresh and simple appetizer.
