    I love using fresh fruit in gazpacho soups. In this recipe, I use fresh watermelon for a fruity and refreshing touch to this classic Spanish cold soup. This recipe is the ideal summer starter when you have guests and a barbecue on the go. You can make the soup the day before and store it in the fridge. This will help the flavours in the soup to blend better. Serve it really cold and garnish with some chopped feta cheese, watermelon, toasted croutons and a drizzle of basil oil. You can also add other ingredients such as crab meat with chopped avocado or thinly sliced ibérico ham with chopped hard-boiled egg.


    1. Prepare all the vegetables in advance and allow them to soak with a pinch of salt for at least 30 minutes.
    2. In a food processor or using a stick blender in a large bowl, blend all the fruit and vegetables until smooth.
    3. Add the olive oil, sherry vinegar and blend again. If the soup is a bit too thick you can add some water to help it achieve the right consistency.
    4. Season with salt to taste and chill in the refrigerator overnight.
    5. The next day take the soup out, whisk or blend together.
    6. To make the basil oil, finely chop the basil leaves, mix with the olive oil and blend in a food processor until smooth.
    7. Serve the gazpacho in four chilled soup bowls and garnish with the feta cheese, watermelon, croutons and a drizzle of basil oil.
