 Recipe :
1/2 a Watermelon || 1 red pepper || 1kg of tomatoes || 75ml of red wine vinegar || 100ml Olive oil || I clove of Garlic || Passion fruit seeds || Ice cubes .


First flame grill your pepper over the flames of your gas cooker 
( or cook in the over for 30mins) place in a plastic bag and tie . The steam will help you remove the skin of the pepper.

Blanch the tomatoes in a bowl of boiling water. Put a lid on the bowl and leave for 5mins. Drain and then the skin should just slide of with a gentle squeeze 

Place the watermelon, Pepper and tomatoes in a blender a whizz up. And the garlic then the red wine vinegar and olive oil. Add some salt and pepper and taste to see if you need more vinegar or olive oil added depending on how you like it . 

 Give it a quick whizz then place in a jug with a handful of ice and leave in the fridge for a few hours 

when you are going to serve scoop the passion fruit in to the jug and stir before serving with some sourdough bread or taste greek Olives.
