I don't but most of my family does. Pepper on cantaloupe, I don't do that either.
Nope none of that.
Before there was space or time there was rock and roll.
Arkansas has the best watermelon fwiw.
I agree. Most of the watermelon I have eaten was in Arkansas at my Grandparents so I'm wondering if maybe its a Southern thing to salt it or just something they did.
Nah just get a spoon and a big old hunk and go at it.
Three W's In My Life: Ward, Weinke, and Winston
My blood pressure is high enough as it is without putting salt on my watermelon
Why? In other words........no, never.
Life is hard. It's really hard if you're stupid.
No, but I will salt apples every now and then.
I've put salt on cantaloupe, but never watermelon. And I don't usually put salt on cantaloupe, just every once in a while.
I put salt on the waddymelon and I also salt my jello. I'm all about conflicting sensory stimuli.
I didn't even know that was a thing...
I made it up, but it DID kind of sound like I knew what I was talking about. Sort of B. F. Skinnerish you know. "Aversicve stimuli" "operant conditioning", "stimulus/response and a whole bunch of other stuff flowing from the Skinner Box.
You only salt Watermelon if you want it to taste really, really good.
If you're more interesting in a healthy food/snack, then no salt.

Froggy you're making me laugh again. Stop it. I actually got my degree from Iowa in Psychology. They were big on Skinner and what was then called behavioral psychology.
Salt on the watermelon is approach avoidance for me. If you know what I mean?
It does the same thing to watermellon that it does to beer...............
it makes it taste salty.
but a 1/2 a pinch in the coffee grounds be fore brewing can smooth out the flavor.
Mt, I have a degree in Psychology from Missouri Valley College earned in 1976 after I got out of the Navy in 1973. Then did Grad work in Psych at Western Illinois University and completed 24 hours of a 32 hour Masters program. Skinner and the operant conditioners was just coming into vogue in 76. I took my degree and parlayed it into a Psychological Tech and Psychometrist positions at Marshall State School and Hospital in Marshall, Mo. Huge (approx 900 residents when I worked there) complex for the mentally retarded, developmentally challenged, mentally ill and everything under the sun population. Started out as a Hospital Attendant (absolute lowest level of employee in the entire facility) and I worked a number of wards including those for the mildly retarded, moderately, severely and profoundly retarded on the 3:00 to 11:00 shift and then went to college during the day. I also work occasionally on the ward that was refered to as the" basket cases" that was populated with row after row of cribs containing the bodies of the most severely physically and mentally undeveloped and our job there boiled down to feeding and changing the diapers of abandoned family members of people from all over the state. Most came there during the era when the State of Mizzu basicly told people to drop their deformed children off at the state hospital and forget they ever existed. Most of them ended up in the "Pau Pau" patch where the state burried the indigent and the only identification of their grave site was a small white stone in a field with a number on it. Somewhere there was supposed to be a list that attached a name with the number. I spent 5 years working there and not once did I ever go to the Pau Pau Patch after dark. Real mental health programs were almost non-existant in the 70's, but with the coming of the Skinnerettes, of which I was a member, some help began to come to the fore. It was still an antiquated and archaic system but Behavior Mod mod programs were being tried all over the place. Great philosophical and ethical battles were fought over use of drugs like Thorazine and Mellaril and B-Mods designed to use multiple types of "aversive Stimuli". It was truly the "Bad Old Days" of mental health treatment. I made a career out of those Neandertal beginnings.
I'll salt your watermelon alright.
My teacher told me that I was a piece of sh*t
Seen her the other day, driving a piece of sh*t
I don't get it.
that's what happens when you get the preggers Misty.
