Watermelon Tomato Gazpacho

READY IN: 4hrs 20mins
Recipe by drhousespcatcher

A nice summertime recipe that calls for only raw ingredients and no cooking time. Lovely blend of flavors with no one flavor dominating. Used the Blender to puree. Done rapidly with no heat and would be very good for leftover watermelon. Cooking here is chill time.

Well...it would have been nice to read about the bitters in the ingredients rather than in the directions and note in step 6. I cannot rate this fairly until I try it with a milder jalapeno - even my Mexican husband said it was too hot, and I will have to see if I can find bitters somewhere in my podunk town.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Seed and puree the watermelon.
  2. Then combine the watermelon puree with the diced watermelon, tomato, cucumber, bell pepper, lime juice, parsley, ginger, jalapeno, green onion, bitters and salt. Note the authors recommend you use a large bowl but you see that empty watermelon shell over there? Hey it makes a great serving container and you don't have to wash it.
  3. Stir to combine.
  4. Season with pepper and salt to taste. Use any other desired seasonings to taste.
  5. Serve with chilled serving bowls or chill for approx four hours then serve or using a large bowl, place in chilled serving bowls and serve immediately.
  6. Note: Parsley leaves should be one small handful. the bitters are NOT optional.
  7. Original was from the Philadelphia Inq. 7/13/05.
