Watermelon Gazpacho

A lot of people know about the traditional gazpacho, which is a tomato based cold soup.  But I have heard a lot about different types of gazpacho, and i think the one that stood out the most was watermelon, so i gave it a try.  I took some watermelon, olive oil, orange juice, and salt and blended them.  After straining the pulp, I diced up some flat leaf parsley, red onion, avacados, cucumber, red bell pepper, garlic, added some apple cider vinegar, cayanne pepper, and poured everything in the watermelon soup.  It sat in the refrigerator for 2 hours.  The longer you leave it in the better.

Then I cooked up some shrimp, diced them up, and added them to the mix, saving some for garnish.  Even though it’s winter time sometimes we want to have something refreshing; especially with heaters being on and having dry air and skin.  I think this cold soup really satisfies those urges that our bodies need.  You can also enjoy this with some tortilla chips and of course the one i made was for 2 to share. Enjoy!
