Growing up, watermelon slices were always served sprinkled with salt. It would enhance the melon's sweetness, and was utterly delicious. My current favourite way to eat watermelons is to sprinkle slices or chunks with chili salt. You can find jars of it in South American shops, but it's easy to make at home: just combine some finely crushed or powdered chile with salt, sprinkle away, and add a spritz of lemon or lime juice, if you want. You might even be able to get away with using chili powder.

The chili salt is also wonderful on tropical fruits such as pineapple and mangoes.

Have a nice Labour Day Week-End!

Bon app'!
