The fruit that comes to mind when I think of summer is Watermelon. This week, two recipes to show that there are other ways to eat watermelon other than just cold from the rind.
Gazpacho is a cold soup. This is a very refreshing version.
8 cups seedless Watermelon chunks
2 Cucumbers, peeled, seeded and cut into chunks
1 small Onion, chopped
1 12-ounce jar Roasted Red Peppers, drained
1 cup Tomatoes, chopped
1/2 cup Cranberry Cocktail Juice
3 tablespoons Olive Oil
1/4 cup Raspberry Vinegar
Salt to taste
A generous dash Louisiana Hot Sauce
Place all ingredients in a food processor, pulse until almost puréed or to desired consistency. Add more cranberry juice to thin, if needed.
Good Cooking, Good Eating and Good Living!!!
