Watermelon Gazpacho

When I told my daughter that I would be making the watermelon soup today, she was surprised ,She must have assumed that it was a hot soup:-)…Gazpacho is a  tomato based cold  vegetable soup originally served in spanish cuisine .This cold soup is a welcome change for this summer from the regular soups

I always wante dt o try gazpacho but the main determent was will anyone eat it. Now with your post I know if that even if no one eats it I will. 🙂 Si Si this will feature in my kitchen.

have read about a lot about gazpacho but somehow not comfortable with the idea of a 'cold' soup! But if you say so, it probably will make for a good summer soup. Looks very very nice

Looks very nice Veena, until you said I never imagined it to be a soup!..I am not much of a soap person, so cold soup never came to mind…good that you guys enjoyed!
