Fleur de Sel is used in this easy recipe by William Yosses Recipe calls for a SMALL melon. Fleur de Sel is a lovely salt, but only the extravagant use it for cooking. Most people use it as a condiment and sprinkle a pinch here and there in places where the salt will shine and its distinctive flavor and texture will be appreciated.

Being from South India where every day was a hot summer day, we ate and drank a LOT of watermelon juice. We had chunks of hand squeezed water melon in a glass of cold water and we added sugar instead of salt. Sometimes raw sugar and other times brown sugar. <br/>Now, here in the USA, I still make water melon juice for my children and guests on hot summer days, and it is amazingly refreshing.
I love watermelon juice and this one was fantastic. I love the sweetness that the salt brings out. It was very refreshing. Thanks for sharing this lovely recipe that results in a nice thick drink. Made for the Fearless Red Dragons - ZWT8 - Family PIcks Round
Very refreshing! I wasn't sure that I would like this because it seemed like an awful lot of salt for the amount of melon, but I was pleasantly surprised. The chilling was definitely key here. Thanks for posting! Made for The Honeys for ZWT8
