From Kathleen Purvis’ blog I’ll Bite, at obsbite.blogspot.com:
From what I saw last Saturday morning, farmers market season is in full swing. The corn hadn’t yet arrived, but everything else that makes summer worth waiting for was on hand, from cantaloupe to zucchini.
It was the perfect time to try a recipe I spotted recently in the magazine Vegetarian Times from blogger and author Tess Masters of “The Blender Girl” (Ten Speed, 2014). I love tomato-based gazpacho and will certainly make that soon. But Masters’ version uses a base of watermelon, for a mix that ends up with a complex flavor, sweet, spicy and salty.
With the hot days finally here, too, I’ve been packing this for lunch at my desk.
