There are some food combination that sound very weird at first but end up being delicious! Think about PBJ sandwiches, ice cream and fries or even chicken and waffles! It just seems like opposites attract, even when it comes to food!
Have you heard of combos featuring watermelon? Some people like to add feta cheese, while others only swear by...salt!
If you haven't tried it, you probably think that salt would simply dry out the watermelon's watery and sweet flavor. However, all good cooks know that a pinch of salt will enhance the flavour of sweets and that includes watermelon! As HuffPost explained, the salt makes the watermelon taste less bitter, too.
It is more of a "thing" in the southern U.S. where people already knew about this "hack" for a while now. Luckily for us, people online shared this "secret" and we can now enjoy it too! With summer coming up, it is the perfect timing to try this unique combination!
Even the Internet agrees with this surprising combination! It actually seems like a lot of people are putting salt on their fruits, such as pineapple! While other people are doing the opposite and putting sugar on veggies such as cucumbers. We never heard of that combo!
Besides salt, some are putting seasoning on their delicious watermelon! Maybe you could try something like chile lime seasoning if you like a touch of spice!
Have you ever tried putting salt on watermelon? Will you try it?
