Brainy Guys Love Gazpacho!


I did not know that gazpacho was actually Spanish and I think pretty much resembles salsa.

Here is an excerpt from an expert ~ "Gazpacho" is cool, refreshing and flavorful start to a meal on a hot summer day. This soup is eaten often in the southern part of Spain called Andalusia, the region from which is originates. Eat gazpacho from a soup bowl, or drink it from a glass. Either way, it is tasty, refreshing and very healthy, since it is made from nothing but fresh vegetables and a bit of oil and vinegar. During the hot weather, do what the Spaniards do - Make a batch of gazpacho and keep it in a glass pitcher in the refrigerator for whenever you need a cool drink.

I like the last part, keep it in a glass pitcher for whenever you need a cool drink, and the best part... its pretty much a health food.  Follow the recipe which can be done in a blender on coarse setting for soup and liquid if you want smoothie.
  • 3 lb. ripe tomatoes, peeled, seeded - coarsely chopped
  • 2 green or red peppers, seeded- coarsely chopped
  • 1 small red or white onion - coarsely chopped
  • Washed and chopped fresh green (curly) parsley
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar or balsamic 
  • 6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  •  3 cloves of garlic - minced
  •  1 squeeze of fresh lime juice
  • salt to taste
 *Try it topped with croutons or as a side any toasted bread.
