Gazpacho with cucumber and mint

By 20/08/2015

This summer I have been deeply in love with mint. I have been making mint tea and enjoyed it cold and I have added it to many dishes, I love its sweet and delicate flavour.

This time I have paired it with cucumber and made a gazpacho with watermelon and plenty of ice. I found it so refreshing, light and healthy. I had it in the afternoon as a snack but this would make a nice and light starter for summer.

Don't forget to add a drizzle of olive oil as a final and essential touch to this dish.

  • Prep Time : 15 minutes



Whiz 500 g - 17 oz of cucumber with the mint leaves and a little olive oil, the vinegar, salt and pepper.

    Hi Alida,
    A really cool and refreshing recipe. I love watermelon and the mint is awesome with the cucumbers. My mom years ago would have some mint plants on the side of our house when I was still home. She would always ask me to go outside and pick some mint leaves for a tomato salad that she would make with cucumbers as well. I love to do that as my hands would have the aroma of the mint on them..loved that..Lovely dish and this is the perfect time of year for this recipe. Thanks for sharing dear friend….enjoy your day and weekend…
    Dottie 🙂
