Refreshing Gazpacho is a Perfect Recipe for Hot Summer Days

This is the perfect time to make cool, refreshing gazpacho now that ripe, local tomatoes are abundant at the markets and in the “potagers” (kitchen gardens). There are as many variations to this soup as there are cooks. You can make gazpacho with tomatoes, watermelon, green heirloom tomatoes and even a white gazpacho with almonds. Other than popping the tomatoes into boiling water to peel the skins, this recipe doesn’t get you anywhere near the stove. Add a baguette, a platter of charcuterie and a chilled rose and lunch is served.
