The Best Way to Eat Watermelon

The Only Way to Eat Watermelon

The trick to having the best tasting watermelon is . . . salt it. Sure, it may sound weird to salt a sweet fruit, but you've probably had a watermelon margarita with a salted rim or a savory salad like watermelon caprese. The salt enhances the flavor of the fruit, adds a nice contrast to the sweetness, and draws the liquid out, making the fruit even juicier. As an added bonus, the added salt helps quench your thirst on a blistering days. My friend recently told me it's her favorite thing to snack on during Summertime barbecues and post-workouts alike. Use normal kosher or table salt or experiment with flavored salts (like smoked salt). If you want to get fancy, try flake salt for added crunch.
