Melon gazpacho with cucumber and ham recipe

I love to drink cold soups when summer comes . The Andalusian gazpacho is my favorite. Every year, when summer arrives, during the weekend I prepare 5 liters of gazpacho to drink throughout the week.

A year ago I decided to try different versions of gazpacho. One of the ones I liked the most was the melon gazpacho that It is usually eaten with pieces of ham, croutons and cucumber .

This recipe made with melon is very refreshing, smooth, tasty and with a sweet touch of this exquisite fruit. I have decided to bring it on the blog today since many of my acquaintances had never tried it.

This dish is perfect for cooling off during hot summer days . We recommend taking it as a starter, before the main course.

If you like cold soups and especially gazpachos you have to try the Andalusian gazpacho, the watermelon gazpacho recipe and the gazpacho made with strawberries.

I started cosmorecipes in 2020 during the time we were cooped up at home. Having so much free time I spent a lot of time in the kitchen trying different dishes. So I decided to mix cooking with my other great passion: web programming. That's why I decided to open this blog where I post the different recipes that I'm cooking.
