A Simple, Delicious Gazpacho

This gazpacho recipe is super easy to make – just blend and chill! Cold, complex, and refreshing, it’s perfect for a hot summer day.

Ingredients

  • 1 English cucumber
  • 2½ pounds ripe tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 fresno chiles, or ½ red bell pepper, stemmed and seeded
  • ¼ small red onion, rinsed
  • 4 small garlic cloves
  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro, plus more for garnish
  • 3 tablespoons sherry vinegar or red wine vinegar
  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 1¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Cherry tomatoes and fresh herbs, for garnish

Instructions

  • Finely chop ¼ of the cucumber and reserve for garnish.
  • Peel the remaining cucumber, cut into chunks, and transfer to a blender. Add the tomatoes, peppers, onion, garlic, cilantro, vinegar, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Blend until smooth. Season to taste and chill for at least 2 hours.
  • Serve the soup with the reserved diced cucumber, fresh herbs, drizzles of olive oil, and freshly ground black pepper.

Chill the soup for at least 2 hours before you eat. You can serve this gazpacho recipe two ways: in a glass or in a bowl. Drink it for a light lunch or appetizer, or load up your bowl with toppings to make it a meal on its own! I like to garnish my bowl with diced cucumber, cherry tomatoes, fresh herbs, and a drizzle of olive oil. …Love and Lemons
