Gazpacho with Summer Squash

The following recipe and photography was provided courtesy of Heinen’s Club Fx Recipe Developer and Food Photographer, Allianna Moximchalk from Allianna’s Kitchen.

This cold Gazpacho is super easy to make and perfect for summer as it requires zero cooking! Gazpacho originates in Spain and is often used as a starter for summer meals, especially during tomato season.


The thing I love most about this chilled soup is that you can really spice it up with hot peppers if that’s your preference. I love to batch cook this recipe and freeze the extra so I can literally eat it all summer (and even fall) long. Trust me, it is that good!
