Watermelon Isn't Just For Fruit Salads
Watermelon is a delicious summertime treat that kids can't get enough of during the hot months. And gazpacho is a deliciously filling soup that's perfect this time of year. Combine the two, and you get the perfect dinner on a hot, humid evening.
Watermelon screams summer to me. There's nothing better than stuffing chunks of the fruit in your mouth by the handful when the temperature hits the triple digits. But you don't have to limit yourself to eating the fruit straight off the rind. You can blend it up into smoothies, make Popsicles or add it to salads. You can even use it for soup.
Now I know what your thinking: Who wants to have soup when it's hot and humid out? I know I don't. But a cold soup like a gazpacho, that's another story. Not only will this soup cool you off, it'll fill you up as well. The fact that it's delicious, too, makes this a guaranteed summertime hit.
