Cool Down With This!.....Watermelon Gazpacho

After our 4th of July party, we had so much left over watermelon.  I immediately thought to make a gazpacho with it.  What else is better on a hot summer day than a refreshing and light gazpacho??

This recipe appeals to everyone!  It is vegan, raw, gluten free and just damn good!  Even my husband, who dislikes the traditional tomato gazpacho, is a huge fan of the watermelon version.

I am so excited about this recipe that I think I will play around with a few other fruits to see what else I can create.  I will keep everyone posted once a new variation has been created.

If you do make this, I suggest to eat it within 3-4 days.  Because everything is fresh and raw, it may start to spoil after a few days.

This would also be a fun, cute idea if you are having a spring/summer party.  You can put the gazpacho in little shooter glasses for a light and sexy little shot.

Ingredients/Directions: (yields 4-6 servings)
1/4 watermelon chopped
1 cucumber chopped
1/4 c chopped red onion
1 red pepper chopped
1 garlic clove chopped
1 jalapeno (remove seeds and dice)
handful of chopped fresh parsely

In a blender, blend 3/4 of all the above ingredients.  Transfer to bowl, and add in the remaining chopped ingredients.  Add in salt and pepper to taste and chill until serving.

It's as easy as that!  Light, simple and sexy!
