Chilled soup is a summertime favorite, especially when it’s made with watermelon. This soup has a pleasantly surprising taste, along with a bit of spicy kick from the serrano chile. Enjoy as a light dinner on a hot evening, or serve as an appetizer for any summer meal.

  • 1 large tomato, pureed
  • 1/2 serrano chile
  • 2 cups cubed fresh watermelon
  • 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons minced red onion
  • 1/2 cucumber, seeded and minced
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh dill, plus more for garnish
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese

In a blender, puree the tomatoes, chile, and 1/2 of the watermelon. Pour in the red wine vinegar and olive oil and pulse. Add the onion, cucumber and dill and season with salt and pepper. Puree until smooth. Pour into chilled bowls and sprinkle with dill, feta, and remaining watermelon. Serve.
