Traditional Gazpacho Recipe
Gazpacho- a chilled soup made from raw vegetables, usually served as an appetizer.
Growing up, my father frequently ordered gazpacho when we dined out.
At home, he would attempt his own version and it always turned out fantastic.
I quickly fell in love with the flavor and freshness of the dish- plus a soup you can eat in the summer time to cool you off?
Sign me up!
I decided to give this classic a try, but threw in some hot sauce and jalapeno to add some kick.
Because summers can get pretty hot here in Maryland, this traditional gazpacho recipe is great to add to your recipe rotation!
This recipe can be made in a matter of minutes and cleanup is a breeze.
Check out the super simple recipe below! Enjoy!
