Watermelon, Installment 3: Gazpacho

The third and (second to) last installment of how to use up all that watermelon you have left over from the spicy salad that I know you all made:

    gazpacho: A refreshingly cold, summertime soup hailing from the Andalusia region in southern Spain.

Contrary to popular belief, its not only the tomato, pepper, cucumber etc variety of soup (the “salad as a soup” variety, if you will). Gazpacho offers you more than that. True, it is usually tomato based, but it can be any kind of cold soup, and this one is watermelon based (a watermelon salad as a soup, perhaps??)

Its especially important to not over-blend the ingredients. There is so much water in watermelon (duh) that’ll quickly and easily get runny and not that good.
