grape gazpacho

Grapes are super sweet, maybe the sweetest fruit around, and they were always a huge treat for me and my sister growing up. We'd devour them before they were out of the shopping bag.

I have been meaning to make grape soup ever since I saw it on Kahakai Kitchen. I love the taste of cucumbers mixed with fruit. I prefer a more wet, less creamy soup so I left off the almonds and bread. Here is my take on grape soup.

Grape Gazpacho 
Serves one, loosely adapted from Kahakai Kitchen's Grape Almond Soup
1/2 English cucumber
1 shallot (2 if you like it spicy)
1 1/2 cups green seedless grapes
10 mint leaves
1-2 tablespoons white wine vinegar

Loosely chop cucumber and shallot. Place all ingredients in blender. Chill before eating.
