Gingered Watermelon Gazpacho

Chilled soup is the perfect accompaniment to HOT summer days. We enjoyed this refreshing take on Gazpacho just last weekend, while the temperatures in Los Angeles were hovering above 110 degrees. It certainly helped keep us happy and cool!

Super simple to prepare and a refreshing addition to any meal, or even alone as a snack.

Finishing this cool, crisp and delicious soup with a dash of our Zen™ Seasoning takes it to the next level of amazing!


4 Cups Watermelon, rough chopped (seeds removed)

1 Cup Watermelon, diced to 1" cubes (seeds removed)

1 Cup Persian Cucumbers, diced

1 Cup Green Apple, diced

½ Cup Inner (tender) Celery Stalks, diced

¼ Cup Fresh Mint, finely chopped

1 ½ Tablespoons Fresh Ginger, finely grated (more to taste)

¼ teaspoon Sea Salt

3 Tablespoons Fresh Lime Juice

1 Tablespoons Red Wine Vinegar

2 Tablespoons Balsamic Vinegar

To Taste:

Sleepers Gourmet: Zen™ Seasoning

½ Cup Greek Yogurt or Sour Cream, optional


Puree 4 Cups of watermelon in a blender until smooth. Transfer to large bowl. Add remaining 1 cup of diced watermelon and next 9 ingredients all chopped to uniform size. Stir to combine. Cover gazpacho and refrigerate until well chilled-- at least 1 hour and up to 4 hours.

Divide into serving bowls and sprinkle with our Zen™ Seasoning.

Sour Cream or Greek Yogurt also make an EXCELLENT addition. Just a dollop on top is perfect.
