This Gazpacho recipe is fresh, the perfect summer soup, easy and fast to make and grab whenever you want. Gazpacho is perfect when it is too hot to eat but you need cold and lunch all at the same time. The cherries add that sweet plus to the recipe.The best season to prepare Gazpacho is when the tomatoes turn juicy and sweet in summer.TIP: All gazpachos need to spend a couple of hours in the refrigerator. This gives the flavors time to fully develop, and the soup time to chill completely.
Another important TIP: We like to add some chopped onion, cucumber and green pepper to the top with a bit of EVOO and eat it with a good slice of wholewheat bread or gluten free bread of your choice/needs.Want to save this Recipe for later?
