Recipe Notes

I’ve made this cantaloupe gazpacho so many times over the last couple of years, and every time I seem to garnish it with different toppings. This time I opted for blueberries and fresh basil (and how about those pink lemonade blueberry stunners??), but here are some additional equally delicious suggestions that I’ve tried in the past:

  • Hemp seeds & micro greens
  • Crab & basil oil
  • Avocado & finger limes (or lime zest, if you can’t find them)
  • Thinly sliced radish & chives
