Watermelon Gazpacho

I would show you the pic I took but it came out AWFUL.  This recipe is courtesy of Tyler Florence.
UPDATE: Here's the requested ugly pic...
  • 1 large tomato, pureed
  • 1/2 serrano chile
  • 2 cups cubed fresh watermelon
  • 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons minced red onion
  • 1/2 cucumber, seeded and minced
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh dill, plus more for garnish
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
In a blender, puree the tomatoes, chile, and 1/2 of the watermelon. Pour in the red wine vinegar and olive oil and pulse. Add the onion, cucumber and dill and season with salt and pepper. Puree until smooth. Pour into chilled bowls and sprinkle with dill, feta, and remaining watermelon. Serve.

Results:  There was some sweetness but not as much as you would think.  This was actually shockingly delicious.  I took it to a party and people raved about it!

so did the pic look awful or the dish looks awful (but tastes great)? That sounds like something PINK i'd like to serve at a cocktail hour!!

I really want to see what it looks like. Awful or not...

Adei... The pic was awful. Just awful! It's partly because of the cup I had to serve it in since it was a cookout. As you now see... It's not really pink. It's more red because of the tomato.

Anitra... I posted it. LOL

Wow. Looks...ummmm...interesting. The flavors sound good though. So if it was a win, I am on board.
