In our watermelon
thread last Friday, a commenter asked a question we were thinking about too: who puts salt on their watermelon? This was a very strange and foreign concept until recently when we tried it, and the piquancy of the salt did indeed bring out a little more of the melon's sweetness, concentrating the juices . If you want to try it yourself, just sprinkle a bit of salt on a cold wedge of watermelon, or get fancy and try this Watermelon with Fennel Salt
recipe from The Splendid Table.
Will you put salt on your watermelon this July 4th?
