I can’t even explain to you how amazingly refreshing this gazpacho is. The jalapeno gives it a kick, which goes with the sweetness of the watermelon fantastically. The texture is incredible – I like a thicker gazpacho, but if you like something more soupy, just pulse in the blender of food processor for longer.
