Stephen Window, executive chef for Casa de Las Campanas, says, “We are heading into watermelon season, so it’s the perfect time of year for watermelon gazpacho. I enjoy using fresh, seasonal ingredients throughout the year. This is a refreshing, light, healthy and, best of all, fat-free recipe. Enjoy!
