Within this infinite virtual space of fleeting micro-trends, there is now a new one that revolves around watermelon, and the best way to present it, whether you are a gastronomic stylist or an amateur. Because, at the end of the day, food often ends up entering through the eyes.

This is how Heather Wish Staller (@happykidskitchen) reflects it in a video that generated obsession on the net, for her fun and adorable way to serve fresh watermelon chunks. The trick? Cutting the fruit into the shape of potato chips with a zigzag cutter, and accompanying it with a dip that you can easily whip up in a blender.


🍉Watermelon “Fries” with Easy Strawberry Yogurt Dip: So fun and refreshing! Blend plain or vanilla Greek yogurt with 3 to 4 strawberries (and optional honey or other sweetener to taste) then serve with sticks of watermelon. I used a crinkle cutter which you can buy on Amazon or any kitchen store. Make sure to refrigerate and serve chilled! Happy summer!! #momsoftiktok #watermelon #funfood #healthykidsfood

The zigzag-shaped serrated knife becomes the utensil with which to make these longitudinal and transversal cuts with which to sculpt the watermelon. Then, a series of condiments and accompaniments are added to these “healthy version fries” to intensify the flavor of the summer fruit: natural Greek yogurt, a handful of strawberries and a touch of honey, creating an aesthetic, rich and healthy composition.
