A cold soup is just what the hot summer ordered. Traditionally, the vegetables in gazpacho were pounded by hand. Modern day food processors, while infinitely more convenient, heat the veggies and also create an undesirable foam. Not interested in the labor intensive pounding route? I pulsed the veg-mixture - the slightly chunky result was nice. For a second gazpacho recipe, check out my original gazpacho - updated with new photos.

Ingredients

  • 2 lb watermelon, cubed

  • 2 Tbsp red wine vinegar
  • Garnish with basil, feta and/or Greek yogurt

Preparation

  1. In a large bowl, toss watermelon, tomatoes, cucumber, hot pepper, garlic, bread and salt. Let sit for one hour so the bread can absorb the liquid.
