gazpachoA perfect recipe for near perfect tomatoes, this gazpacho is cool, refreshing and bright. Especially good from May through October. In a pinch, used canned diced tomatoes (look for ones with basil).
Preparation Time:  25 minutes
Cooking Time:  0 minutes
Servings  4
Serving Size:  1 cup servings


1 cup each diced (1/4 inch): cucumber, red or orange bell pepper, and seeded ripe tomato
1/4 cup red onion, finely minced
1 cup tomato juice
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 dashes (or to taste) hot red pepper sauce, such as Tabasco
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Optional: chopped fresh parsley or cilantro, diced avocado


Place all ingredients in large bowl and combine. Allow to sit for about 5 minutes. Coarsely puree about 1/2 of mixture in a blender or food processor and return to the bowl. Stir well to combine thoroughly, and refrigerate for at least 2 hours and up to 8 hours before serving. Garnish with parsley, cilantro, or avocado, if desired.


If you like, drizzle each serving with a little extra olive oil, right on top, to maximize flavor.
