  • I put salt on mine as well. I can eat it without as I don't want my kids to see me eating salt because then they will try it and want to eat it that way. LOL But I like salt on all my melons and on my cucumbers and on my tomatoes as well. Sometimes you just have to have the salt taste!

  • My family always did. I thought this was the way to eat it. I discovered later on that it is delicious without salt, and since extra salt isn't good for us, I no longer use it on watermelon. Nor cantaloupe. Nor cucumbers.

  • Yes... it is YUMMY! I also salt Cantaloupe. I bet any melon would be good with salt.

    I like salty chocolate too.... Choc covered pretzels are the best.

  • I also put salt on watermelon, everyone thinks I"m gross too. I try not to let the kids see me do it, because I don't want them to do it, just because I dont' think they need that extra salt. I"ve always ate it that way though, since I was a little girl, my grandpa taught me to put salt on it.

  • My grandfather put sugar on tomatoes. He said it cut the sour taste. But yuck.
