Side Dish, Soup
gazpacho, chilled soup, gazpacho recipe
blender or food processor
long English cucumber
red bell pepper
cored and cubed
extra virgin olive oil
red wine vinegar
salt to taste
freshly cracked black pepper
Place all the ingredients into a blender or food processor. Blend until it is smooth enough for your liking. I tend to not like any chunks in my gazpacho.
Drizzle with a bit more olive oil and some more black pepper.
Eat with croutons or by itself for a light and refreshing side or meal.
If the acidity is a bit much for you, feel free to add a drizzle of cream along with the olive oil to your bowl.
