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!
