Farewell summer/Watermelon love

If I had a dime for every watermelon I've cubed up this summer I'd be living pretty large!

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:

I was given a set of the Maldon Triple Gift Pack & never really knew how to best use the smoked salt.  But, eventually, it hit me it would be awesome with melon & it is! 

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!
