Speedy Summer Gazpacho
This Speedy Summer Gazpacho recipe is perfect for those days when you don’t want to fuss around the kitchen. It takes summer’s best vegetables – sweet and juicy tomatoes, cool cucumbers, succulent celery, flavorful bell pepper, and zingy garlic – and blends them up into a classic summer soup.
I especially love adding a generous amount of basil to this recipe. Fresh basil, along with lemon juice, brings bright, tangy notes to this dish and makes this soup sing with summer flavors. There’s nothing like a bowl of savory cold soup on a hot day, so this refreshing gazpacho is sure to hit the spot.
