Spice Up Your Summer With Watermelon and Jalapeño Gazpacho

If you love a chilled Summer soup, it's time to blend up this inventive gazpacho recipe from Relish: An Adventure in Food, Style, and Everyday Fun ($40.99), the new cookbook from Daphne Oz (Dr. Oz's daughter!). Sweet, spicy, and refreshing, this cooling soup blends a healthy array of hydrating produce like cucumbers and watermelon with fresh herbs and the right hit of spice.
