    Kendra PeloJoaquin's Note:

    A perfect summer dish. In a chilled bowl with a wedge of lemon on the side, Gazpacho is very classy looking. I learned this recipe in 7th grade when a woman from Spain visited our class during "International Week". She made it in front of us and it took about 10 minutes. About 8 years later, I remembered the recipe on a really hot day, and I've *never* had any leftovers regardless of how many batches I make.

    • 6 -8 tomatoes, chopped (Roma or plum are best Don't lose the juice!)
    • 1/2 large white onion, chopped finely (red is a nice alternative)
    • 1/2 large white onion, chopped in 1/4 inch chunks
    • 2 small cucumbers or 1 large cucumber, chopped
    • salt (preferably sea salt)
    • fresh ground black pepper
    • virgin olive oil
    • 1 lemon, juice of
    • chopped basil or cilantro (preferably fresh)
    • 2 cloves garlic (or a tablespoon of diced garlic from a jar)


    1. 1
      Dump 1/3 cup olive oil and lemon juice into a blender or food processor.
    2. 2
      Add the vegetables, then the seasonings.
    3. 3
      I start w/ a little add more after I've mixed it all up.
    4. 4
      Use the"chop" or"grate" function until the gazpacho is soupy but still has some good sized chunks.
    5. 5
      Taste and then add more salt, pepper, oil or basil to your preference.
    6. 6
      I usually serve this*very* cold as a summer appetizer or meal w/ tabasco and parmesean cheese on the side, and some good crostini or bread.
