Sun Dried Tomato Gazpacho

Gazpacho2

It’s summer and what’s more summery than tomatoes? I was playing around with gazpacho recipes for a personal chef client of mine, and settled on this idea. Sun dried tomatoes lend a deeper layer of ¬†flavor to the soup, but you could certainly make this recipe without them. I’m all about simplicity, so this recipe is meant to be easy and approachable. If you feel like getting creative, try adding some melon, maybe some roasted bell peppers……some hot sauce or other herbs…… anything that you feel would be delicious in this tomato based soup!

A bright and refreshing simple summer soup. I like to add extra lemon and lime to my gazpacho right before serving to heighten the citrusy notes, but play around and make it your own!
