Watermelon gazpacho (Gazpacho de sandía)

Gazpacho is a refreshing soup perfect for the summer time. Today´s recipe is a variant of the traditional gazpacho recipe. The difference is that we´re going to use watermelon.

500g of watermelon
500g of tomatoes
1 glove of garlic
1 red pepper
1/4 of a onion
5 Spoons of good spanish olive oil
2 Spoons of good balsamic vinegar
Some basil if you like it
Salt and pepper

All the ingredients must be put in a food processor or a blender. Puree it. Strain the puree in case it has some tomato or pepper peels.
Put the puree in to the fridge to cool for at least an hour.
Before serving, stir the gazpacho to blend all the ingredients.
Serve with little cubes of watermelon.


  1. I've never eaten Gazpacho because the thought of cold soup doesn't appeal to me, but these pictures look so good, I might even try it.
