LOVE OF THE SEA: Watermelon Wednesdays-A refreshing gazpacho...

LOVE OF THE SEA: Watermelon Wednesdays #5.... A refreshing gazpacho...:
**Disclaimer: I have NOT tried this recipe, but I plan to very soon and I will report back with my findings.**

I found this awesome looking recipe on a blog I read called Love of the Sea. You can click the link above to go directly to her page with the recipe. It's for a watermelon gazpacho, and I thought it looked like a refreshing treat on a hot day. I LOVE watermelon.
This recipe originally came from Martha Stewart. Well not actually right from her, but rather from her website.  ;-)

5 cups peeled, seeded, and roughly chopped watermelon

  • 1/2 cup cranberry juice
  • 1 cup peeled, seeded, and diced cucumber
  • 1 cup diced celery (about 2 stalks)
  • 3/4 cup diced red bell pepper (about 1 pepper)
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves, minced
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, minced
  • Juice of 1 lime (about 3 tablespoons)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon jalapeno pepper, minced


  1. Combine 5 cups watermelon and the cranberry juice in the jar of a blender, and puree until mixture is smooth. Pass through a fine sieve into a large bowl or plastic storage container, discarding pulp. You should have 3 cups strained liquid.
  2. Add cucumber, celery, bell pepper, onion, herbs, lime juice, vinegar, jalapeno, and remaining cup chopped melon to watermelon liquid, and stir to combine. Cover with plastic wrap, and place in refrigerator until soup is well chilled, at least 1 hour. Serve, or store in refrigerator up to 1 day
