Sweet & Salty

Ordinarily, I hate any combination of sweet and salt. If it's sweet, let it be sweet, but if it's salty, please give me more salt. I found myself eating my words (and a yummy dish, at that) today when I went to work at Sacred Chow. They'd made this cold fruit salad thing with onions and avocado and watermelon and mango and cilantro. And there was a dressing on there which had something sour, and salt and something something. It was quite good.

Lemon. That's what it was. Either way, I'm quite pleased. However, just don't tell anyone else, because I'm supposed to dislike my beautiful salt be adulterated with sweet.


  1. You're making me hungry! That sounds lovely. I understand your not liking salty and sweet, my grandmother always salts her watermelon. I have always thought it was odd, but maybe I should try it?

    Have a great week, I love the podcasts, they have been very helpful. Tonight I'm making either the banana bread or the cake of almond. Yumm.


  2. Shave watermelon "carpaccio" slices onto your salt block and serve with crushed wasabi macadamia nuts. That's another great sweet & salty mix.
