Trish Deseine’s Watermelon and Green Tomato Gazpacho

Tart, unique and refreshing, Trish Deseine updates classic Spanish gazpacho – and avocado salad – with watermelon and black vinegar 

The tartness of the tomatoes goes well with the sweet melon and the black vinegar (my new favourite ingredient) and anchovies make it all a little funky. Season with salt if you don’t use the anchovies, and serve ice cold, naturally.

Watermelon and green tomato gazpacho

Serves 4, 5 minutes preparation

300g seedless watermelon

2 or 3 green tomatoes

1 small clove garlic, peeled

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 salted anchovies (optional)


1 tablespoon Chinese black vinegar (or sherry or balsamic)

2 or 3 ice cubes

Olive oil for garnish

Put all the ingredients in a Nutribullet or other powerful blender and blitz until smooth. Garnish with ice, a drizzle of oil and slivers of tomato and melon.

Watermelon salad with avocado and sesame

Quick, super nutritious and refreshing, this is my go-to combination of the moment, with prawns or poached salmon bringing the protein and grapefuit or strawberries for acidity.

Serves 2, 5 minutes preparation

1 large slice of seedless watermelon, chopped

2 good handfuls of baby spinach

2 tablespoons toasted sesame

1 avocado, sliced

1/3 cucumber, peeled, sliced

1 teaspoon Chinese black vinegar (or sherry or balsamic)

1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil

Salt and pepper 

Toss all the ingredients in a large bowl and serve with extra vinaigrette on the side.
