At a recent family reunion, a cousin asked me if I had any salt. My first reaction was why anyone would need additional salt with all the standard pot-luck fare my family had just uncovered. When he said he wanted it for his watermelon as he likes how it brightens the flavor of his favorite fruit, a slow smile appeared on my face.
