Gazpacho

Hurry! Hurry! Summer is almost over. As Fall approaches I am trying to get in all the summer recipes I love. Gazpacho is super easy to make and a great light dinner. I’ve had gazpacho I didn’t like because it tasted just like salsa but this recipe has a soft & sweet tang from the white wine which I think makes it more “soup-like” than some recipes. Served with crusty country bread and sliced cheese it makes a perfect light summer dinner.

  • 8 cups chopped fresh tomatoes
  • 6 inch piece seedless cucumber, chopped
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, seeded & chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup white wine

  • S/P
  • Bread & cheese for serving
  1. Blend the tomatoes in a food processor until almost smooth.
  2. Add the cucumber, bell pepper, garlic, wine, vinegar & olive oil. Pulse until smooth.
  3. Taste & season with S/P and additional olive oil/wine if needed.
