“Royal Blueberry” Gazpacho with Lemon and Mint

This twist on gazpacho is an unexpected first course, a new idea for brunch, or a great summer dessert. It is interesting enough just topped with grated lemon zest and snippets of fresh mint, or with flake salt or finely diced honeydew and cantaloupe for drama and texture. Diced strawberries and a dollop of Greek yogurt would also be nice.
