Cucumber Watermelon Soup
Two of my favorite summer flavors are watermelon and cucumber. They are both so refreshing. This simple cold soup combines the two for a perfect summer treat. It makes a great healthy snack when you need to cool down on a hot summer day. It’s also a perfect appetizer when you are entertaining outside in the summer.
- 3 cups of watermelon chunks (seeds and rind removed)
- a splash of lime or lemon juice
- 1/4 cup chopped cilantro or flat leaf parsley
- 1 small cucumber (peeled and seeds removed)
- pinch of salt
Get out your blender and add the watermelon chunks, lime or lemon juice and cilantro. Blend everything until it is getting pretty smooth. Cut your cucumber into chunks and add it to the blender along with a little salt. Blend until there are still some small cucumber chunks in the soup. Taste and add more salt if needed. Chill the soup in the fridge before serving.
If you prefer a completely smooth soup, put everything in the blender at once and process until smooth.
