What better season to try this Watermelon Gazpacho, fresh, light, and cool on a hot P-O summer day!


Approx 3 cups of watermelon, chopped and seeded

1 cucumber, diced

1 red or yellow bell pepper, diced

1 small onion, chopped

2 tbsp lemon juice

1 tbsp olive oil

1 jalapeno (or to taste if you like a bit more ooomph)

2 tbsp fresh chopped parsley

salt and pepper to taste


Place about half of the watermelon, cucumber, pepper, onion and all of the jalapeno in a blender or food processor. Add olive oil and lemon juice and puree until smooth.

Combine with remaining melon and parsley in a large bowl and mix well. Add more salt and pepper, to taste.

Chill for at least one hour, to allow flavours to combine, and stir well before serving.

Serve chilled
