Nothing wrong in putting sugar on watermelon. I never heard of that but no more strange then putting salt on a watermelon. It sounds good to me and may even try it the next time I have a watermelon.

Can't really think of a specific lunch item. When you're hot and hungry you do need nourishment, so pretending I have been really active and sweating I can imagine a cold roast beef sandwich on a croissant with avocado and tomato. It's more about the beverage, cold water first. Then beer. If I can't have a beer I will be a shill for the big Arizona teas. Either watermelon or my favorite, the Mango Lime Rickey.

Or any sherbet, pineapple, raspberry, orange. Some combination.

Lemonade and some kind/sort of cold soup, of course.

Vanilla fudge ice cream for breakfast.
Watermelon for lunch.
Homemade, cold fruit tea (no sugar) with squeezed lemons, all day.
Depending upon how hot (like a week or so ago here), it's probably too hot to eat dinner.

A nice slice of lime. With a side of gin & tonic resting underneath.

Me either, never heard of salt on watermelon! Maybe someone can explain why salt.

I just had watermelon that was a dud. Not sweet at all and would've tasted great with sugar if only I had some.

A little sprinkling of salt on fruit brings out the sweetness even more. I do that with strawberries and they taste great. I have to say that strawberries are sometimes tasteless - we refrigerate our strawberries to stop them from getting "furry." Refrigerated strawberries don't taste that delicious. Fresh picked strawberries, washed and at room temperature are the best. I like organic strawberries but there's worms sometimes - nothing whets the appetite more than a couple of worms crawling on a strawberry...YUCK!

Default We lightly salt starfruit here...



Starfruit grows in abundance here. We were taught to lightly salt it to bring out the inherent sweetness and at the same time to tone down the acidity of this fruit.
