    Recipe creator Amber Antonelli recommends making the salad a day before you plan on serving it and waiting to add the avocado and almonds until you are ready to eat. Prefer a sweeter salad? Antonelli sometimes adds thinly sliced fresh apple and dried currants for a unique twist. Not a fan of almonds? Any nut will do, but toasted is a must.

    Fresh watermelon, tomato and cucumber are perfectly balanced in this unique, savory gazpacho. Chef Nathan Lyon's passion for in-season produce and bold flavors shine in what he has termed, a fresh, slightly spicy, 'salad in a blender'.
