I never have, but my grandmother always did. When I was a kid I always thought it was gross but now that I understand food more I can see why it'd taste good. I do put salt on my lemons and on very tart green apples.

Make sure you have a deep red, ripe watermelon. Cut a full slice of watermelon into a round (Like a big, pink penny) and put it on a plate. Cut away the rind. Cut it into squares. Sprinkle w/ lemon juice, salt and maybe a bit of paprika. Mmmmmm!! Sometimes it's cut into a big spear and sold on a stick as streetfood in Baja.

I love to put salt on my watermelon and cantelope. The salt actually let's you taste the sweetness of the fruit better. If you have never tried it you should and then you would understand.. Definitely YUMMMMMM

i don't eat very many packaged foods so don't get salt that way and end up adding salt to my food a lot and find it really brings out the flavours. haven't tried this one though!

I don't get the thrill ... the only fruit I put salt on, sometimes, is Granny Smith Apples.

I also have never heard of doing this. Is it a regional custom at all or just something I have escaped?

My mom has always put salt on her watermelon, and pepper sometimes, too. I'm not a huge watermelon eater, only because it bloats me so much and then I get really bad gas. *LOL!*

no, but a little on my cantaloupe is good. You can get the salty/sweet thing by wrapping in in prosciutto too. I wouldn't salt my watermelon though.

The older generations of my family do it! My parents and grandparents and great-grandparents (when they were alive)! I asked my mom about it and she simply said "It's a Southern thing" I live in Southern California and I guess I'll never understand...I would never do it!
