Watermelon Gazpacho

The summer heat is back in full force! When it's this warm outside, I crave anything chilled. Gazpacho is one of those foods I don't make that often, but is perfect this time of year. It's so refreshing and takes literally 5 minutes to make. This soup is traditionally made only with tomatoes and fresh herbs, but I decided to add watermelon for sweetness and jalapeño for a slight kick. The feta cheese on top adds a nice salty "pop" to each bite. Enjoy!
