A fresh and mild gazpacho that takes advantage of all that summer has to offer. Super easy too. Garnish with a sprig of fresh dill and serve chilled.

Absolutely the biggest hit at our Labor Day family get together! I increased the amounts by about 50% or so using 1/2 reg. and 1/2 plum tomatoes plus 1 red bell pepper in addition to the green one and 2 jalapenos (1 seeded the other not). Since half was going to be blended anyway I fine chopped 1/2 and the other was course chopped for the blender saving prep time. Speaking of which the listed prep time was VERY conservative more like double for me. Also seeded the cukes and put all seeds in the blender. I think it made for a less watery soup. Served with crusty Italian bread and a bottle of Tobasco sauce on the side and it's a meal itself! Read More

I lost my favorite recipe for gazpacho and this recipe was the most similar to it. I normally use cilantro but thought the dill would be a nice variation. After trying it I wasn't that impressed. I didn't think it had as much flavor. I will definitely use this as the base from now on and just switch the herbs. Thanks for the recipe Read More

This looked and smelled fantastic while I was preparing it! My husband doesn't like vegetable chunks so I pureed the entire thing. I don't recommend that. I didn't like the texture without the vegetable chunks. Also it was an unappealing brown color because of the red of the tomatoes combined with the green of the bell pepper. It seems like a red or yellow bell pepper would give this a more attractive color. Anyway my husband decided that the gazpacho smelled hideous and he wouldn't eat it so it's all mine. It tasted great as a puree but I added some chunks back in to improve the texture and it's terrific! If I make it again though I'll try it as a salad without pureeing at all. UPDATE: I did make this again as a salad. It was delicious but there was a lot of liquid in the bottom of the bowl so I guess it does need to be partially pureed to incorporate that liquid. Read More

Out of this World! A lot of chopping but so very worth it! I did add a bit of chopped fresh basil too out of preference. Read More

Very nice recipe; I modified it with several ingredients I had available - a small beet carrots a zucchini and used mostly cilantro just a little dill sherry vinegar instead of balsamic. I pureed only about 1/3 instead of 1/2. But the base recipe would be excellent as-is - I can never leave recipes alone! I'll be amazed if this batch lasts long enough to chill down... Planning to serve with a splotch of either sour cream or yogurt. Read More

This was delicious! I used an orange pepper instead of a green one to save the colour and used a few drops of Tabasco as I had no jalapenos. I didn't do any chopping either - I kept 4 tomatoes aside and blended them roughly into everything else at the very end to make sure there were some lumpy bits. Read More

Just finished making this and I had to sample it before putting it in the fridge. It's excellent! I didn't use as much dill as it calls for and I also added fresh basil and parsley. I'm sure once it sits for an hour or two it's going to be even better. Read More

I halved the recipe and substituted some lime juice because I didn't have enough lemon. It is wonderful! A great summer dish. I think next time I will use a yellow or red pepper to preserve color in the liquid as another reviewer suggested. Thanks for sharing! Read More

I used a 28 ounce can of crushed tomatoes instead of fresh. I also used about a teaspoon of garlic powder a teaspoon of dried basil and I pureed the entire thing. It's very very good. Read More
