It’s the gazpacho you know and love, but infused with juicy watermelon. Thanks to my friends at the Houstonian Hotel & Spa for helping us cool off!

Method for the Soup:

In a blender puree the watermelon, tomatoes, cucumber, jalapeños and bell pepper then strain through a chinoise, pressing on the solids to extract as much body as possible.  Season the soup to taste with Tabasco and salt.

Method for the Garnish:

Small dice all remaining ingredients, toss with extra virgin olive oil, season with salt and pepper.  Use diced vegetables to garnish above soup.
