This is a quick and refreshing recipe for a lunch or a warm summer evening! I like to add to this cold watermelon and basil soup some feta cheese (to place on the top!) to add some texture and make it more of a complete meal. But I still make a salad to go with it, because let’s be honest, watermelon is mainly water so it isn’t very nutritious 😉 As you might have noticed this winter I am a lot into soup, so in summer, I love to use the good vegetables in a cold soup!
