Adding salt to enhance flavours in non-savoury foods

So I've always heard that adding a pinch of salt brings out the flavours of foods, and works great even in sweet foods. Just wondering - can you really taste the difference in, say, desserts? Has anyone, for example, made a dessert both with and without salt (either by accident or intentional experimentation) and found that it was tastier with salt?

Thanks for your insights!
