Curious About Cantaloupe...

As we're coming into cantaloupe season, inquiring minds want to know... do you salt yours or not?

While I do enjoy a nice ripe one au naturale, I did grow up eating it salted and love that too!
For my Friday night snack I used Chipotle Sea Salt-very nice with cheese and crackers!

Earl prefers his unsalted
 "huh? were you talking to me?"

How about you?
Have a happy weekend:@)

  1. I prefer my melon just plain, but ice cold. I have never tried it with salt. I will have to try a slice sprinkled with a little salt.

  2. Well...with salt if I eat it alone, but, of course, without in a fruit salad! I have some in my fridge right now! Happy weekend!...hugs...Debbie

  5. Thanks for stopping by Slice of Pie! I eat my melon with and without salt! When it is really hot outside ... like the 108 in Southern Illinois today ... I crave it with salt!

  7. What a cute photo of Earl. Just found out he has a long lost sister, too. I eat my 'loupes unsalted, but have tasted it with and it does make it seem sweeter. Keep cool this weekend. xo

  10. Not on cantaloupe but yes on watermelon sometimes. I rarely add salt after cooking or on raw veggies or fruits-it is the nurse in me I fear.

  11. It has never occurred to me to salt cantaloupe to enjoy by itself...Hmmm. Sounds pretty delicious.

    P.S. Thanks for your comment. I smiled when you wrote you had 4" of space...It's a skill to pack the fruit.

  13. I grew up with salted cantaloupe. Your chipotle sounds extra good. That Earl sure likes to get into mischief, doesn't he? He's about the cutest thing in blogland. 🐷

  21. Just curious....is salting it an east coast thing? Only ask because growing up in the east my dad salted both cantaloupe and watermelon, I followed his model and did the same. I haven't seen that as a practice in the west. Grandma also sprinkled a bit of sugar on tomato slices...but I am thinking that was just to get me to eat the tomato!

  23. I love cantaloupe and will eat it both ways but must admit to salting it mostly! Hugs, Linda

  24. I feel kind of out of some kind of loop because I have never tried it salted. I guess I should try it on some tonight. We're having some with dinner. Hmm.

  25. My dad always salted his cantelope! I wonder if that is a Pennsylvania thing as that is here he grew up? I do both -- I love cantelope!
