Ingredients

  • 6 Cups roughly chopped seedless watermelon
  • 3 Cups roughly chopped tomatoes
  • 1 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 Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

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.
