Watermelon Gazpacho

Sending

  • Ready In:
  • Makes 5 cups

This vegan watermelon gazpacho gets its spicy kick from fresh jalapeños and chili powder, while diced cucumber and jicama add a cool bit of crunch. Best of all, the recipe comes together in just 15 minutes. 

To pick a nice, juicy watermelon, look for the yellow “field spot” that indicates the fruit has been ripening on the ground. When the spot is a creamy yellow color, the fruit is ripe. A juicy watermelon will also feel heavy for its size.
