Tomato Gazpacho

Hi guys, happy Summer!!!

Here is a SUPER recipe for you! This is a cold soup originated from Spain, specifically Andalusia, which is normally enjoyed in the summertime too cool us down! I thought this would be a perfect one to share with you since:

  1. Winecoach is a HUGE Spain enthusiast and has opened me up to appreciate this soup like I never thought I would (I mean, cold soup? Weird… except not! It is just delicious!).
  2. We were just in Spain last month and I got inspired all over again.
  3. I have Tony Tomato in my life, a local farmer extraordinaire here in St. Louis who makes all my tomato dreams come true!

Well Tony stopped by this week with beautiful heirloom tomatoes and we just knew: GAZPACHO all weekend!

So this is what you do:
