Pulverize honeydew chunks in blender; add some extra diced melon and fresh snipped mint leaves. Makes a wonderful and super-easy summer soup.

My parents always put salt and pepper on cantalope--and so do I.

Maple or cane syrup on breakfast sausages. which is actually a common combo in the south.

tequila on a veggie stir fry...if you put soy sauce and a shot of tequila on the veggies & tofu, the flavor is great!

fresh basil leaves and watermelon in the summer is not only beautiful, but refreshing.
skfinkel's avatar
I just was treated to a Mexican salt with a chocolate caramel. Quite lovely.

After spending 7 months in chile, i learned that almost anything tastes great with mayo--especially artichokes. I also love a touch or orange juice in my pancake them a kick.

lavender salt on mango.

i always squeeze fresh lemon onto sauteed spinach...I thought this was common but I recently found out from friends that for most it is an unusual (and delicious) food combination. Fresh lemon is also yummy when squeezed into red lentil soup.
andrew's avatar
Lemon on brussel sprouts makes sense, but spinach...interesting.
peggylou's avatar
Brie cheese, sliced Granny Smith apples and apple butter sandwich!
zina's avatar
i thought this was a common thing, but apparently not ----- my grandma LOVES peanut butter and pickle sandwiches (typical amount of peanut butter, and add 5 or 6 of those quarter-sized pickle slices - i think sweet or bread+butter are better than super sour ones!)
zina's avatar
also, peanut butter and banana sandwich, in the same fashion
zina's avatar
not uncommon here in hungary, but i thought i'd mention it -- sour cherries (aka pie cherries) and cinnamon. for example, as a smoothie (both in some kind of milk) or in cold fruit soup (made with sour cherries, water, sour cream, cinnamon, possibly sweetener and optional other ingredients)
andrew's avatar

Also! Hummus and pretzel sticks! Who knew!

breedmitch's avatar

how about crumbled, cooked bacon in pancake batter. heard of this on "frasier" and tried it. its great

Kimchi and goat cheese omlette.

I just had apricot-lavendar flavored balsamic vinegar and it is amazing.

Little green grapes stirred up in a bit of sour cream, then put brown sugar on top.
If you substute yogurt, it doesn’t work.

Cinnamon added to blueberry pie. Also, mix some cooked-up blueberry
filling with some raw blueberries and throw the whole lot into a baked pie shell. Bursts of blueness. I got this from jeanman. Don’t eat this in bed.

A bowl of raisins and salted peanuts for snacking is better than either apart. This is also true of these 2 ingredients at the movies. Get BOTH Goobers and Raisinets and
have tiny fistfuls of both together. If they don’t have Goobers, use peanut M&M’s.

Cinnamon in plum jam when you make it.

Lemon/peel in apple pie and leave out the cinnamon.

Parsnips (peeled) and potatoes (cut but not peeled) roasted with kosher salt, olive oil and a lot of rosemary. You need all of these ingredients to make it perfect. Let a brown crust form on the bottom of the veg.

Salt inside caramel. Now that is delicious.

Capers are delicious in potato salad; boiled, unpeeled cubed new potatoes, raspberry vinaigrette, a few fresh or frozen raspberries and some capers. Sliced organic apples (w. skin on) sprinkled w. some cinnamon.

I’m a huge fan of a peanut butter and jelly-with dill pickles sandwich. My current variation is with jalepeno jelly and extra salty dills.

La_chica_gomela's avatar

Someone mentioned pancake batter with orange juice—my mother makes pancakes with sweet potatoes and orange juice. It’s actually kind of amazing.

Another great combo is Lavender liquour and ice cream.

Fresh strawberries will enhance
a good cup of coffee. Give it a chance!

A cinnamon stick or two
is key to my beef stew.

With apologies to Dr. Seuss

asmonet's avatar

Lemon juice + Banana mashed in a bowl is divine. Oh and plain steamed asparagus dipped in mayo.

Allie's avatar

Salami and a tiny bit of cream cheese. My friend made me try it – surprisingly tasty.
