Ingredients

  • 6  Cups  roughly chopped seedless watermelon
  • 3  Cups  roughly chopped tomatoes
  • shallot, chopped roughly
  • 2  Tablespoons  olive oil
  • 2  Tablespoons  sherry vinegar
  • 1/4  Cup  roughly chopped cilantro
  • 1  Teaspoon  salt
  • 1/4  Teaspoon  black pepper

Directions

Put 5 ½ cups of the watermelon, 2 ½ cups of the tomatoes, shallot, oil, vinegar, 2 tablespoons of the cilantro, salt, and pepper into a blender and purée until smooth. Transfer the purée to a fine-meshed strainer set over a large bowl and strain the purée, pressing as much through as possible. Discard the solids. Cover and chill for at least 1 hour.

Finely chop the remaining watermelon, tomatoes, and cilantro and toss together in a bowl. Pour the chilled soup into bowls or glasses and top with the watermelon-tomato mixture.

Watermelon Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
