Author Notes: I have a garden bursting with tomatoes, and had a small sweet, but somewhat older watermelon forgotten on the bottom shelf of the refrigerator. I made gazpacho, but my family does not like gazpacho. So I added sugar and froze it in an ice-cream machine. It was yummy. not very sweet. Refreshing, surprising, and with an olive oil flavor note. Just the thing to go the very creamy basil ice cream I made earlier in the week (yes, that is here too). —sara diamond
