Gazpacho – Chilled and Delicious

It’s 30 degrees C here on the west coast of Canada, and the best place to be, quite frankly,  is in the shade under the apple tree – I moved my office out there where there was a slight breeze.

The local markets are booming with fresh fruits and vegetables – this made me think – it’s time to make a cool and delicious Gazpacho soup.

It’s literally the easiest thing in the entire world to make. I think it took me 8 minutes! It’s super tasty and so packed full of goodness. It’s tango in the mouth! You can make it for lunch, as an appetizer or for dinner with a slice of homemade bread.

  1. I made gazpacho for the first time the other day myself. I went a little overboard with the hot pepper, so while it was delicious, it had a little too much kick. My friends started making bloody mary’s with it! Ha!
