Summer Watermelon Snack With Ground Citron Salt

Summer fruits are my favorites.  In addition to peaches, blueberries, cantaloupe, apricots, and plums I love snacking on watermelon.

My favorite way to eat watermelon is with lots of salt.  I used to use regular Kosher salt until I found citron salt.

When I had my kitchen store, we carried Falksalt Citron Salt Flakes.  I love to add this to my watermelon snack.

Falksalt flakes can be used directly on food but I prefer a salt mill to finely grind the salt evenly.

I love my yellow French salt shaker for my citron salt.  Doesn’t it scream “summer”?


Pick out the perfect seedless watermelon and cut it up into bite size pieces.  I like using a sturdy Wusthof 8″  or 10″ Cook’s Knife  to cut the watermelon and this 27″ x 18″ Epicurean cutting board with a juice groove to catch all the liquid that inevitably will mess up the counter.

Falksalt makes many different varieties of salt flakes including chipotle, black, wild mushroom, wild garlic and natural.

Experimenting with salt can open up a new culinary world for home cooks.  I use the citron on my vegetables as well with a little olive oil.

Buon Appetito!
