Watermelon Gazpacho Recipe

My neighbor recently posted on Facebook that she made watermelon gazpacho. I was able to get a sample and the recipe and then make it myself. It turned out to be deliciously refreshing. Enjoy!

Watermelon Gazpacho Ingredients
1 yellow pepper
1 orange pepper
1 English cucumber
1/2 red onion
1/2 sweet onion
2 jalapenos
Juice of 1 lime
1 small seedless watermelon
2 cups orange juice
½ cup fresh basil
2 Tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic
Salt and pepper to taste

Dice the peppers, cucumber, onions, jalapenos, and half of the watermelon. Put that in a bowl with the juice of one lime. Add salt and pepper to taste.

In a blender, blend the other half of watermelon, 2 cups of orange juice, about 1/2 cup of fresh basil, 2 Tbs of olive oil, and 2 cloves of garlic. Mix the two together and eat. Or, let it sit for a couple of hours before eating.
