A friend of mine, @healthy.madeinmadison, posted this picture on Instagram about watermelon sprinkled with pink himalayan sea salt. I’ve heard about adding salt to watermelon, but I never actually knew why. Until today. And it has a lot to do with modernization of farming. If you want to learn more, click here.
Basically, ADD SALT TO YOUR WATERMELON. Not nasty, bleached white salt, GOOD SALT. Like Himalayan pink sea salt, or just sea salt. Natural stuff. It really does wonders for the flavor (Thanks, Chemistry!) and aids with digestion.
We took 1/2 watermelon and balled it, then sliced a lime, zested some of it over the watermelon, and sprinkled with the special salt. It was AMAZING. The best watermelon I have ever had. Thanks to our new pink salt.
We found our salt at Metcalfes today, bottom shelf of the spice aisle.
