And wouldn't you know it, just as I published my last blog, a college friend of mine posted a recipe on Facebook for Watermelon Gazpacho. Woot! Here it is:
  • Approximately 3 cups of watermelon, chopped
  • 1 cucumber, diced
  • 1 red or yellow bell pepper, diced
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 T. lemon juice
  • 1 T. olive oil
  • 1 jalapeno (or to taste)
  • 2 T. fresh chopped parsley or cilantro
  • dash salt and pepper to taste
In a blender or food processor, place about half of the watermelon, cucumber, pepper and onion and all of the jalapeno. Add olive oil and lemon juice and puree until smooth. Combine the remaining ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Add to pureed ingredients and stir to combine. Add more salt and pepper to taste. Chill for at least one hour, to allow flavors to combine, and stir well before eating. Serve chilled and enjoy!

Thanks, Shannon, for this wonderful coincidence!
