Reviews for Watermelon Gazpacho
"Wonderfully refreshing...did bulk it up a bit and pureed all ingredients. A keeper!"
"This chilled soup not only makes a grand presentation, the unusual medly of flavors and texture combinations harmonize beautifully. Skeptical guests ooh'd and aah'd and everyone loved the added punch of jalapeno. I served it as an appetizer and it stole the show! A must try. malverna bosh"
