Gazpacho

I remember the day when I started liking {and actually craving} tomatoes, aside from blended tomato sauces for pizza and pasta.  Unfortunately, my appreciation for tomatoes came just after my time in Spain, which is especially sad given the fact that I spent a chunk of time in Andalucia, the birthplace of gazpacho.

This chilled vegetable soup is the perfect light and refreshing meal or side dish during the heat of summer and a great way to use up tomatoes and cucumbers from your garden or market.  There is no real secret to making it and variations abound.  The few times that I have made it, I’ve started with a base and then added seasoning to taste.  My friend, Jonina {from Backpack and Fork}, has shared her simple gazpacho recipe which is yummy as is and also the perfect starting point if you feel like adding more.
