Gaspacho

Of Spanish origin, the gaspacho is THE cold soup of summer! I love to prepare it and serve it very fresh, at the aperitif or as starter. After my version in watermelon, I deliver today the “traditional” recipe with tomatoes, cucumber and pepper. My personal touch? I use cherry tomatoes, slightly more acidic which give even more freshness to the soup.

In any case, prefer very tasty, well ripe and full of flavor vegetables, exit the tasteless tomatoes from hyper markets, if you can, go to a small producer or to the market ;-)

And as I like the dishes that “sting” a bit, I twisted my gaspacho with a hot sauce with chipotle and garlic: not too hot but perfumed, it was absolutely perfect With my gaspacho!
