Hotel Viceroy – Riviera Maya

It featured a cantaloupe base and was embedded with Almond Brittle and Jicama-Mint relish. The mix of the sweetness of the cantaloupe combined with the fresh tomato and hint of spice from the relish make this as flavorful as fresh garden with the lightness of a granita. As we are wont to do, we ordered a second Gazpacho for dessert!
