Expert Tips

Instead of making kabobs, serve fruit in a large glass bowl with the coulis in a separate bowl. Include toothpicks, and let guests help themselves.

Cut the watermelon with mini star-shaped cookie cutters. Place skewers in a clear glass vase. Or cut a fresh pineapple (including top) lengthwise in half. Place pineapple on serving platter, and insert skewers into pineapple. Serve coulis in a pretty cocktail glass.
