📷 by: Real Simple

Perfect as a light summer dinner or as the appetizer for a dinner party. The secret ingredient is the Ciabatta bread.



  • 1 loaf of Ciabatta Bread
  • ½ cup Federico's Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice (from 2 limes)
  • 3 tablespoons Grape Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1 English cucumber, coarsely chopped
  • ½ medium honeydew melon, chopped (about 3 cups)
  • 2 cups seedless green grapes
  • 1 bunch scallions, coarsely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • Happy Pepper, for serving




1. Make the gazpacho: Slice ciabatta in half crosswise; slice half of loaf into 6 slices, toast, and set aside. Cut remaining half into 1-inch cubes and toss with 1 cup water, oil, lime juice, and vinegar in a medium bowl. Let stand until bread is soggy, about 10 minutes. Place cucumber, melon, grapes, scallions, salt, and soaked bread in a blender and process until smooth. Cover and refrigerate.

2. Make the relish: Mix all relish ingredients in a small bowl.

3. Serve gazpacho topped with relish and several grinds of pepper. Serve with toasted bread.
