Still looking for no cook recipes? Me, too. I found this watermelon gazpacho recipe at A Thought For Food. Go visit this lovely blog for wonderful recipes and food photos. Here is a link to a great Sun Tea recipe (fits right in the No Cook theme!). We used to make giant containers of Sun Tea on the deck at my family’s house on the Cape. Today is not quite sunny but I’ll give this one a try later.
(adapted from Tyler Florence’s recipe, FoodNetwork.com)
1 large tomato, seeds removed
1/2 anheim (milder) or serrano chile (spicy) – I might have to leave these out – even the mild chile.
2 cups cubed fresh watermelon
1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons minced red onion
1/2 cucumber, seeded and minced
2 tablespoons minced fresh dill, plus more for garnish
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
In a food processor, chop the tomatoes, onion, chile, and 1/2 of the watermelon until it has reached your desired consistency (I like to leave mine a little chunky). Pour in the red wine vinegar and olive oil and pulse a couple of times. Add 3/4 of the cucumber and dill and season with salt and pepper. Pour into chilled bowls and top with remaining watermelon and cucumber, Sprinkle with dill and feta. Serve.
Can’t wait to try this – I have all of the ingredients on hand except the chile and the feta cheese. Thank you to A Thought for Food!
