|1/2||ripe cantaloupe or honeydew melon, peeled and seeded|
|1/2||ripe pineapple, peeled and cored|
|1 pt.||fresh strawberries, hulled|
|1||small bunch of seedless green grapes (about 20)|
|1/3 cups||guava paste|
|2 1/2 tbsp.||fresh lime juice|
- Cut the cantaloupe or honeydew melon into 1-inch, bite-sized cubes and place them in a large bowl. Cut the cored pineapple half into 5 or 8 long wedges and then into bite-sized chunks-you should get at least 40 pieces. Add the pineapple to the bowl along with the strawberries and grapes.
- In a blender, puree the guava paste and lime juice into a smooth, thick dressing. Pour the dressing into the bowl and toss with the fruit.
- On each bamboo skewer, spear 7 or 8 pieces of fruit: begin and end with grapes because they're the firmest anchors. One possible order could be grape, pineapple, melon, strawberry, pineapple, melon, grape. Arrange the finished fruit skewers side by side on a large oval platter. Make a second layer with the skewers perpendicular to the first layer. Continue the criss-cross pattern for as many layers as needed.
- Serve immediately or cover well and refrigerate until serving time.
