Watermelon Soup with Vegetables

Makes: 6 servings
Prep 25 mins Chill  several hours
Watermelon Soup with Vegetables
Ingredients
  • 1 5 - 6  pound  seedless watermelon
  •  Sugar (optional)
  • 3/4  cup  fine julienned strips of carrot, zucchini and/or yellow summer squash
  • 1  tablespoon  balsamic vinegar
Directions

1. Halve melon; scoop out pulp. Process in batches in blender container or food processor. Line a large colander with a double thickness of 100%-cotton cheesecloth. Strain pulp through cheesecloth, pressing out as much juice as possible. Discard pulp. Measure 6 cups juice. (If there are fewer than 6 cups juice, add water to equal 6 cups.)

2. Add sugar to taste, if desired. Cover and refrigerate soup until ready to serve.

3. Meanwhile, cook vegetables in a small amount of lightly salted boiling water for 2 minutes. Drain and transfer to a bowl of ice water to cool. Drain and wrap in plastic wrap; chill in refrigerator until ready to serve.

4. To serve, stir balsamic vinegar into juice mixture. Ladle into bowls. Float strips of vegetables on top. Makes 6 appetizer servings.

From the Test KitchenTest Kitchen Tip:
  • To create the vegetable confetti use a vegetable peeler to create thin strips. Try the veggies piled on a fresh summer salad, too.
