  • 600 g watermelon
  • 1 white nectarine stone removed, flesh sliced
  • 1 sweet plum stone removed, flesh sliced
  • 1 lime juice and zest
  • 2 tsp runny honey
  • 12 g Buderim Ginger’s Naked Ginger roughly chopped


  1. Cut watermelon into two large triangular pieces (leaving the rind on). Cut out a 4-5cm diameter hole from the top of the flesh of each watermelon chunk. Roughly chop the watermelon that you have cut out and reserve for later.

  2. Arrange the nectarine and plum slices in each of the cut out watermelon holes. Add the chopped watermelon, squeeze over the lime juice and grate the lime rind over the fruit. Drizzle honey over the fruit salad and sprinkle ginger over the top.
  3. Serve cold on its own or with plain yogurt.
