Watermelon Gazpacho

In my quest to find No Cook Dinner's....I've found several soup recipes.

I really enjoyed this one and I served it with half of a wrap made with turkey and Swiss cheese.

My husband didn't like the soup....his comment was that he felt like he was eating salsa. *Connie rolls her eyes*

He would prefer not to see this on our table again. Luckily, he's not in charge and I will be making it again. Soon.
