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.


  1. Remove rind from watermelon and chop the flesh then purée in a blender.
  2. Add fleur de sel and refrigerate overnight.
  3. Serve very cold.

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.

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
