Before these lovey sweet things say adios - enjoy them as much as you can. My husband loves to eat watermelon with a spritz of lime - & I agree, it's delicious! But, my favorite way is with salt. Always has been, always will be. Pretty much any salt will do, but over the past couple of years I've been loving this combo:
Think prosciutto with honeydew melon - it's a little like that delish combo.
Really, give it a try. If you don't want to go through the hassle of ordering salt online (but, honestly, Maldon is so worth it) or finding it in a local shop, try some plain or kosher salt if you've never tried salted melon.
Salt makes everything taste better.
It's probably possible to make a DIY version of smoked salt (Pinterest?) using liquid smoke which is available at most grocery stores - I've never tried it, but maybe I will when this box runs out. Salt can be flavored with almost anything so I am thinking maybe some salt with lime zest would be delicious with melon too.
Do you have a favorite way to eat watermelon?
ps. smoked salt is great on popcorn too!
