Incorporating more raw foods into your diet is easy to do in the summer since you can buy itKiley McNulty web crop locally or grow & pick it yourself. This recipe is one of my favorites. It reminds me of Grandma & I in the garden, eating as we picked. The tomatoes & watermelon warmed from the sun... the combination & sweetness of the two really make this gazpacho a simple & refreshing meal. Enjoy!
