Enjoy a refreshingly cool (and super-healthy) soup this summer. Make tomato gazpacho in honor of our in-season tomato celebration, or switch it up and use watermelon, red peppers or even grapes.
Traditional or With A Twist
Traditional Spanish gazpacho is a pureed mixture of fresh tomatoes, sweet bell peppers, onions, celery and cucumbers, but don’t be afraid to get creative. Shake things up — blend a batch of watermelon, red pepper or white grape gazpacho instead.
Recipes to try:
- Gusty Red Pepper Gazpacho
- Paula Deen’s Classic Gazpacho (pictured)
- Watermelon Gazpacho
- Macho Gazpacho
- Bulgur Gazpacho
- Smooth White Grape Gazpacho
