This summer-ready gazpacho tastes cucumber-forward with an underlying sweetness from the honeydew and honey, and the sherry vinegar sharpens those flavors. Serve with delicate-tasting seafood such as crab, soft herbs, a yogurt drizzle, or olive oil-toasted bread cubes.

  • Coarsely chop remaining cucumbers and transfer to a blender. Add honeydew, bread cubes, 1/4 cup oil, vinegar, and 2 1/4 teaspoons kosher salt. Process on low speed, gradually increasing speed to high, until cucumber mixture is very smooth and creamy, about 90 seconds.

  • Pour gazpacho into a medium bowl. Cover and chill until cold, about 1 hour.

  • Right before serving, toss together reserved cucumber slices, feta cheese, mint, honey, and a pinch of salt in a small bowl.

  • Stir and ladle gazpacho into 4 shallow bowls. Top evenly with cucumber-feta mixture and drizzle with olive oil.

It was really great! The first time I made it, I did not have any honey, but found it sweet enough. Used two large English cucumbers and a half of a honey Dew Mellon, plus I used a little more mint. The second time I made it, still no honey, used two tablespoons Amaretto, even better! Next time maybe Creame de Mint? Read More
