Gazpaco Ingredients

Gazpacho is a perfect summertime recipe. Many of the ingredients can come straight out of your garden or from a friend’s (thanks, Rodney!).

Like tabouli, gazpacho is easier to make with a food processor. Or you could be much better with a knife than I am (not that hard) and have lots of patience.

Ingredients

  • 4 large ripe tomatoes
  • 1 large cucumber
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 cup tomato juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 small clove garlic
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Peel and chop the vegetables very fine. Mix all ingredients together and chill before serving.

Variations

It’s not much of a variation, but we almost always make a double recipe. We also use vegetable juice (V-8) instead of tomato juice. Wikipedia has even more variations.

Be brave in your experimenting. You can’t go wrong with gazpacho.
