Tasty Thursdays: Tomato, Cucumber & Pomegranate Salad + Watermelon Soup

Thursday, September 20, 2012

Top Chef & Top Chef Masters are a couple of my favorite shows -- it manages to always make me hungry! I decided to feature one of the recipes that stood out to me this season, by Chef Art Smith. I's a tomato, cucumber, and pomegranate salad and watermelon soup. It sounds so summery but light, fresh, and refreshing. I think it's the perfect recipe to capture the last few summer days.

Ingredients:
Salad:
  • 1 cup tear drop tomatoes
  • 1 cup cucumber, diced
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese
  • Balsamic vinegar, to taste
  • Olive oil, to taste
Watermelon Soup:
  • 4 cups watermelon
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
Directions:
Salad:
1. Toss ingredients and drizzle with balsamic vinegar and olive oil.
Watermelon Soup:
1. Puree watermelon and season with salt and pepper.

Honestly, I'm not a fan of watermelon soup. I've had it a couple times, from different places, and couldn't stand it. It's funny, because I wish I liked it. Like you said, it's the perfect summer soup! :P

That being said, that salad is going in my belly THIS WEEKEND. I'm obsessed with those kinds of salads, so thank you thank you thank you for giving us the recipe. Yay!

I don't know what to think of watermelon soup. I haven't ever thought of it as a more savory dish, but now I want to taste it.
