WATERMELON GAZPACHO RECIPE

The delicate flavors of cucumber and watermelon go hand in hand to create a sweet-and-savory chilled watermelon gazpacho recipe that was inspired by an abundance of watermelons from a farm on the island.  

Wow your guests with this healthy and refreshing soup by Alexis Wolfer from her book Recipe for Radiance.  

Served chilled, watermelon gazpacho is perfect as a first course on a hot night. 

Use a high speed blender, like a Blendtec or Vitamix for the best consistency. 

Lycopene, found in cooked tomatoes and watermelon, helps defend against sun damage – and might even help both prevent and treat skin cancer, according to the American Cancer Society.

Keep this gazpacho in your refrigerator all summer long for a skin healing soup that’s as refreshing as it is healing.
