Watermelon Gazpacho

Hola!

I hope you had a wonderful Labor Day Weekend. I did!  We had a great weekend with friends, excellent weather, very sunny, and perfect for the beach.

Summer is still here,  two more weeks until it will officially be fall. I’m not ready to give up on summer yet. I thought that you would like to try this simple dish, perfect for the end of summer. It’s a watermelon gazpacho. Super healthy, light and very refreshing for a hot day.

I love watermelons, any kind. I also love tomatoes, so for me this is a very good combination. And this is a creative way to find a use for all of those extra tomatoes you have everywhere. You can drink it for a healthy snack, or serve as a side for lunch or dinner. One piece of advice though. If you do make it, definitely make it ahead of time and keep it in the refrigerator for a couple of hours. You want to drink it very, very cold. Otherwise the flavors are different.

Ingredients;

  • 2 Ibs watermelon ( no seeds or rind!) ( about a 1/4 of a medium-sized watermelon).
  • 1.5 Ibs tomatoes
  • 1/2 small sweet onion
  • 1 small clove garlic
  • 1 red pepper
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • pinch salt

Add all the ingredients into a blender and blend it up. Keep it in the fridge until cold (about 2 hrs).  How easy was that?!

Bon profit!

Hola y Bienvenido/a! Hello and Welcome! My name is Ivette and I am a dual citizen! Originally, I from Catalonia, Spain but in 2014 I moved to the United States and I currently live in Maryland with my husband Richard (number 1 taster, thank you!), my baby girl Beulah my rescue dig Vicky and my two (big!) cutie cats Pintxo & Pastifa. Full house! I love Spanish food. In Spain there is always something to celebrate, gathering with friends and family… We have THREE dishes at every meal! Yes, 3! You will have a first full dish like pasta and for the second dish you will have fish/meat and then dessert, and after dessert coffee…. When I am in Spain and get together with my family (there are 31 of us!), we can start lunch at 2:30pm and finish it at 7pm… I have always loved cooking. My grandmother it is a great, great cook and I think my love of cooking is because of her. When I was in college, my favorite breaks, were getting into the kitchen and cooking or baking something. I was able to escape the normal daily routine of law school. In this blog, I would like to share some Spanish recipes as well as other delicious recipes.
