Meatless Monday: Watermelon Gazpacho


I’m on a mission to find new ways (at least for me) to eat watermelon. And here is the watermelon gazpacho I made for Meatless Monday. It’s good.

The quantities in the recipe here are for 2. It’s ready in less than 15 minutes, plus 2 hours of chilling time.


  • 3 cups of diced watermelon, divided
  • 2 medium ripe tomatoes, cut into quarters
  • 1 medium seedless cucumber, peeled and diced
  • 3 tablespoons of chopped chives, divided
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon of salt (I use Himalayan salt)
  • ½ teaspoon of pepper


In the blender, add 2 cups of watermelon, the tomato, cucumber, 2 tablespoons of chives, olive oil, apple cider vinegar, salt and pepper, and blend until smooth.

Keep covered in the fridge at least 2 hours before eating.

Before serving, divide into two serving bowls, add the remaining watermelon (cut into bite-sized cubes) and chives. And enjoy!

Nice with some toasted whole grain bread.
