I was intrigued by the concept of the cold soups.. so I decided to give this a try. I used Parsley (it was on hand) and orange bell peppers (they were on sale)... it came out very well, very cool and mildly sweet flavors. The notes are crisp from the vegetables and fruits in the soup, and no one flavor of anything stands out. I served it to the boys and they were in awe, it was gone very quickly. I suggest you try it just to see how you like it! I was hoping the acidity would be brought down from the cukes and the watermelon, so my only suggestion is to get the low-acid OJ, I will make it again with the low-acid someday. Perfect dish for a hot day when you dont want to eat. I also saved a smidge in a bowl to be refrigerated overnight, the next day it had AMAZING flavor. I highly recommend putting it in the fridge overnight.

I really enjoyed this. I thought it sounded weird and after I tasted the watermelon that I bought (which was mediocre) I didn't think this would be good, but I was wrong. It was very refreshing and lighter than a normal gazpacho. I paired it with chili and that was perfect! I followed the recipe except that once it was done it was a little too chunky for my taste and put it back in the blender for a very quick spin.
