MELON GAZPACHO (by Maman)

Inspired by her childhood spent in Algeria and the Reunion Island, Maman likes refreshing recipes! Here, she makes a refreshing cold soup that mixes sweet melon with garden favorites such as ripe figs (from our garden in the South of France) for a sweetened spin on traditional tomato-based gazpacho. Bon appetit!
