I thought I'd play on one of my favorite summer salads and created this chilled watermelon soup. Unfortunately I had forgotten about the feta I picked up for the soup when I took the pictures, so you'll have imagine some of that in the bowl ;) It definitely adds a nice dimension to the soup, so I wouldn't leave it out!
Thanks to the fabulous Natasha & Lazaro for hosting! There's lots of summer left, why not jump on the cold soup train?!
Chilled Watermelon Soup
Recipe by Shannon
For the soup:
1 1/2c cubed watermelon
1/4c grape tomatoes
1-2 basil leaves (a few mint leaves would also work well)
dash of salt
cherry tomatoes, halved
hot sauce/chili oil, if desired
Add soup ingredients to a blender and process until smooth. Strain and chill for a few hours.
To serve, place some tomatoes and feta in a bowl and top with chilled soup. Top with some hot sauce or chili oil to give it a little kick, if you're into that sort of thing ;)
