Watermelon Gazpacho

HAPPY 4th of JULY!

I hope that you are enjoying this gorgeous day.  I made a batch of Watermelon Gazpacho to help supplement lunch at the cottage over the holiday weekend and it was delicious.  I thought that you might want to make and serve this as a cool lunch option on a hot Summer day.

Watermelon Gazpacho

Puree chunks of fresh seedless watermelon (about 1/2 of it) in a food processor.  Pour into a large bowl.  Puree 1/2 yellow pepper, 1 nectarine, 1 tomato and a few pieces of onion.  Add to watermelon puree.  Chop into a small dice the following ingredients: watermelon cubes (taken from remaining watermelon half), 1/2 yellow pepper, 1 whole red pepper, a little onion and 1 nectarine.  Add 1 cup of ginger ale, the juice from half a fresh lime and a tablespoon or two of honey.  Add more ginger ale, lime and honey to taste.  Stir and then chill.  Serve cold.
