Summer Gazpacho

Summer Gazpacho - Chew Nibble Nosh

I love gazpacho in the summertime.  And every year, I don’t make it nearly often enough.  This year, I somehow made it all the way to August before diving in to a big bowl of it, and I’m already kicking myself.

I ran across this recipe online. In fact, it popped up in my Facebook feed, screaming “Make me!”. Never one to argue with a recipe, I figured I better get on it quickly. It’s different from a traditional, chunky gazpacho, but I loved its creaminess and delicious fresh flavor.  It’s creamy without a drop of cream, and so refreshing. I will say that the recipe serves four exactly.  So, if you’re hankering for leftovers, or a second bowl, and you’re serving your family, you might want to double up on things.  That’s not hard, though, because it’s, by far, the simplest gazpacho I’ve ever made.

One of my favorite summer soups is cool, fresh Gazpacho. It really may be the most refreshing summer food out there, and the fact that it’s good for you certainly doesn’t hurt.  I try to make a batch at least once a summer, and this summer had gotten away from me before I’d had a chance to!  Last summer, I experimented with a Southwestern Gazpacho (click here for the recipe), and it was delicious.  In fact, just rereading the post has made me think I need to whip up another batch of that soon.  This summer, however, I ran across a new recipe for a different twist on my usual summer favorite.  As you know, I like twists, so I gave it a go.

Southwestern Gazpacho

I love, love, LOVE a bowl of icy, cool Gazpacho in the summer.  When it’s miserably hot out, there’s nothing finer.  I hadn’t made Gazpacho in ages, though, but after having a delicious bowl of a Southwestern inspired Gazpacho on a recent trip to Michigan, I’d been craving another bowl.  I didn’t get up the nerve to ask for the recipe when I was at the restaurant, so I decided to play around with a regular Gazpacho recipe.  The result was fantastic.  In fact, my husband told me it’s the best Gazpacho I’ve ever made.  So, I guess this is my new go-to Gazpacho recipe!
