Watermelon Tomato Gazpacho Recipe

Another week, another bountiful haul of tomatoes from my Mom’s garden! Luckily for me, the Washington Post had an article on no-cook recipes that included an intriguing Watermelon Tomato Gazpacho recipe. Luckily for you, it was delicious enough to share.  

Watermelon Tomato Gazpacho Recipe

 The ingredients are simple: 

2 cups chopped tomatoes

Chopped Tomatoes

2 cups diced seedless watermelon

Diced Watermelon

1 scant cup diced Vidalia onion*

Diced Onion

16 fresh basil leaves, finely chopped (I can’t believe Mom had these for me too!)
1 small clove garlic, finely chopped
1 Tbsp red wine vinegar*
1 tsp olive oil*
1 tsp fine sea salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

*These are my variations to the Washington Post recipe.

 Add everything to a food processor and blend until smooth.
Chill for 1 hour before serving.
Garnish with your choice of toppings:
avocado, diced red onion, feta cheese, toasted croutons.

Note: If you offer a taste of this watermelon tomato gazpacho recipe to your husband in a pretty glass, and he sees the watermelon remnants on the kitchen counter, make sure he knows it’s not a watermelon smoothie, or he might spit it out! :-)

    They serve something similar to this at the Lake Austin Spa and I still dream about it. I’m gonna have to try your recipe!

  3. I love watermelon but have never put it in gazpacho. I have been eating so much of it this summer. I have my own recipe coming out next week-very different. I’m more of a spicy girl.

  5. We had watermelon drinks at a restaurant once that were amazing. I can only imagine your husband’s surprise. Funny.

    I’m the only tomato eater in my house, so I rarely make a tomato dish. But, this could be a good potluck thing. Yum!
