Total Servings: 4


  • 4 cup Watermelon (cubed)
  • 1 Cucumber, medium (diced)
  • 1 Red bell pepper, medium (chopped)
  • ¼ cup Small red onion (finely chopped)

  1. Cube the watermelon, chop the cucumber, bell pepper, and red onion. Chop the mint leaves.

  2. In a blender, combine the watermelon, cucumber, bell pepper, and red onion. Blend until smooth. For a chunkier texture, blend less.

  4. Transfer the gazpacho to a large bowl or container. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or until thoroughly chilled.

  5. Pour the chilled gazpacho into bowls. Sprinkle crumbled feta and chopped mint on top. Add a few ice cubes to each bowl if desired, for an extra cooling effect.

  6. Serve this refreshing gazpacho with a glass of Clark Ferrea Sauvignon Blanc to amplify its crispness and citrus undertones.

  7. Drizzle a little olive oil over each serving and garnish with a mint leaf or lime wedge.
