Thanks for joining Sarah and me for Meatless Monday today. I couldn’t let the summer end without one more recipe featuring the delicious summer tomatoes and watermelon I’ve been enjoying. I figured why pick just one of my summer favorite foods when I can combine them? Today I’m bringing you a refreshing Spicy Summer Watermelon Gazpacho that I know you are going to love.
No longer will you have to decide between watermelon feta salad and a tomato feta salad because I’ve combined them into one scrumptious bowl of goodness. Trust me there is no going back from this! I left in the traditional spiciness of gazpacho and added in the watermelon to give a touch of sweetness. The flavor combination is incredible.
This spicy summer watermelon gazpacho is so simple to whip up. I literally made this batch in under 15 minutes by just using my Ninja blender. No need to cook or dirty any bowls. You throw all the fresh summer ingredients right into the Ninja and presto done in seconds. (affiliate link)
Forget smoothies because a bowl of this goodness is pure vitamins and antioxidants sure to refresh you and be the star of your Labor Day barbecue or picnic. Make it ahead, chill and serve!
My spicy summer watermelon gazpacho has just a few simple ingredients: watermelon, cucumber, tomatoes, jalapeno and optional feta crumbles making it naturally vegan and gluten free. Everyone is happy! What’s even better you ask? This bowl of clean eats is low in calories and high in taste.
Spicy Summer Watermelon Gazpacho
The measurements of the tomatoes and watermelon do not have to be so exact. I like to pulse the cucumbers and tomatoes so that they retain some texture however if you prefer your gazpacho smooth, blend it up. The saltiness of the feta cheese pairs so well with the spicy and sweet watermelon and tomatoes.
Have you been loving the watermelon and tomatoes as much as I have? Any big Labor Day plans?
