Watermelon Gazpacho

Watermelon Gazpacho.

Ingredients (serves 6)

1/2 large seedless watermelon

1 English cucumber (finely diced)

2 limes (juiced)

1/2 papaya (finely diced)

1/2 honeydew melon (finely diced)

2 Tbsp honey

4 plum tomatoes (finely diced)

1/4 c mango juice


Begin by cutting away the rind from the watermelon. Cut the watermelon into manageable pieces and blend on high until you reach a nice, smooth consistency. Allow the watermelon liquid to sit for three minutes or so and skim off the white foam that rises to the top.

Once you have done this, you can whisk in the lime juice, mango juice, and honey. All that is left is to make the fine knife cuts on all of the fruits and vegetables and mix them into the base. Pour and enjoy a refreshing gazpacho, perfect for a summer day.
