1. Worcestershire sauce
To add an extra layer of flavor (and, perhaps to make gazpacho taste more like a bloody Mary), TV star Andrew Zimmern adds this savory condiment along with lemon juice and Tabasco.

2. Grilled
Prolific cookbook author, Steven Raichlen sets vegetables directly on hot coals to infuse them with a smoky flavor before pureeing them for gazpacho.

3. Yellow tomato and lobster
NYC chef Shea Gallante uses sweet yellow tomatoes for his luxuriously smooth gazpacho before topping it off with lobster and avocado.

4. Green zebra tomatoes
TV chef Katie Lee uses the sweet heirloom tomatoes known as Green Zebras in her gazpacho and adds avocado to make it creamy.

5. Watermelon
Watermelon sweetens the refreshing gazpacho from chefs Gabriel Frasca and Amanda Lyndon.

6. Strawberry
For his refreshing, early summer take on gazpacho, Spanish chef Adolfo Munoz blends in fennel and strawberries.
