Give the sweet summer watermelon a whole new flavor profile with chile lime salt.
Marty Silverman, manager of Savory Spice Shop in Westfield, said the shop’s Peruvian Chile Lime Seasoning is a big seller.
The lime adds brightness and the chile gives the fruit it a savory kick. But don't underestimate the importance of salt in the combo.
“Growing up, my dad, brother and I never ate a piece of watermelon without a salt shaker between us,” Silverman said. “Just like in baking, a bit of salt really accentuates the sweetness of fruit.”
Where we found it:
Savory Spice Shop, 138 East Broad St., Westfield, NJ. Available in-store and online.
