“When one has tasted watermelon, he knows what the angels eat.” – Mark Twain – 

Watermelon Gazpacho is a light, refreshing soup. Make and chill in the fridge. Ice-cold Watermelon Gazpacho tastes heavenly on a hot summer day!

Enjoy the joyful days of August with a ripe, juicy watermelon. Even better, drop by your local farmer’s market and purchase one. My favorite farmers market is St Michael’s Farmer’s Market. 

It’s open from 8:00am to noon today. See you there!


Enjoy these last days of summer with some ripe, juicy watermelon!
