I went by the recipe but my watermelon was over ripe and I was not able to use it. I used fresh fruit but for the pineapple I used frozen pineapple chunks. I prepared this for our neighborhood National Night Out and there was just a little left at the bottom of the trifle bowl. A neighbor asked for the recipe and I gave it to her with reference to Eating Well. Love, Love, Love I got lots of compliments on this one and will do again.
