Ingredients

Choose one of these fruits or veggies:

Preparation

Remove skin from watermelon or kiwi (leave it on the cucumber, carrot or jicama). Cut your choice of fruit or veggie into slices about 1/3-inch-thick. Using your cookie cutter, cut each slice into a shape. Chill until ready to use. Those little bits and pieces left over are great tucked into yogurt or chicken salad.

Notes

This works great for cheeses slices as well!
