salt is a necessity of life and used since ancient times as a seasoning, a preservative and a disinfectant.  I put it on watermelon, cantaloupe, cooked vegetables, steak and eggs.:rolleyes:

I use salt sparingly.  It’s not good for ya’ in large quantity and there are other seasonings that offer more and better flavor with less detrimental effects.

 

I use pepper, (several different varieties) in place of salt and have experienced a lower average blood pressure as a result.

 

Having tried salt on different melons and other fruits, I only find it pleasing on tomatoes. Not bad in small dashes on cucumber.

Watermelon, no.  Tried it, just didn't care for it.  Not bad, mind, but not to my taste for watermelon.

Cantaloupe and Honeydew, yes, but in the form of 

Prosciutto- Wrapped Melon

Yes. If I cut an apple into 6 or so pieces I like it on that too.

Yep....and raw veggies of most any kind.

 

Blood pressure?  I eat a LOT of salt and my BP averages 123-128 / 70-78  Oxygen retention os 93-95%.

Watermelon - yes.

Cantaloupe - yes, and a little pepper too.

Honeydew - likely.

Tomatoes are a fruit, so - yes.

even a dash of salt in a glass of V8.

 

add in most vegetables. 

chicken, beef, turkey  

The doctor, and lack of a gall bladder, took me off of swine flesh, but before that, yes.

No on watermelon...why, I don't care for watermelon!

Other melons....No . I like the natural taste of melons, they don't need anything to change their flavor!

Salt on watermelon and cantaloupe- yes. Brings out the sweet. Honey dew- don't eat it.

Salt and melon do well together.

 

Also, chop up a sweet watermelon into salad squares and squeeze a couple lemons on top. That pairs really nice.

I find that salt brings out the flavor and, oddly enough, the sweetness of the fruit.

 

same reason you put a little in homemade ice cream

Misread it.
I thought it said “Sat on your watermelon”.

No never have. Even during Covid lockdown.

I know from personal experience that one Oklahoma farmer back in the early 1950's salted some of the watermelons in his patch with rock salt from his shotgun. :ph34r:
