Honeydew Melon Gazpacho Recipe

We love a good Melon gazpacho around here and Chef Carole at our Maryland B&B has really whipped up something new for us to savor this summer, and we’re excited to share! Despite its very healthy ingredients and appearance, it is darn good! The sweetness of the melon, cucumbers and grapes balance perfectly with the spice and touch of heat from the basil, spinach, scallions and chiles. The avocado adds that bit of creaminess that makes this a perfect cool summer dish. This delicious honeydew melon gazpacho recipe is perfect for your next pool party or BBQ and you’ll be the hit of the neighborhood. Enjoy!
