Gazpacho, what was once a traditional Latin American appetizer, has now made its rounds in the US and has taken on new and innovative forms. Lifted from the Food Network online, this recipe comes courtesy of chef Tyler Florence and it features an always favorite summer time treat: watermelon. Cool and refreshing, healthy and still oh-so-delicious, this watermelon gazpacho has the wherewithal to hold its own in the barbecue cuisine circuit.


  • 1 large tomato, pureed
  • 1/2 serrano chile
  • 2 cups cubed fresh watermelon
  • 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons minced red onion
  • 1/2 cucumber, seeded and minced
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh dill, plus more for garnish
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese


In a blender, puree the tomatoes, chile, and 1/2 of the watermelon.

Pour in the red wine vinegar and olive oil and pulse. Add the onion, cucumber and dill and season with salt and pepper. Puree until smooth.

Pour into chilled bowls and sprinkle with dill, feta, and remaining watermelon.
