Strawberrry Gazpacho Print Recipe Print Recipe

 

When I was in New York last Summer, we dined at abc kitchen where I ate the most incredible food <and drank the most amazing wine>. I ordered the special, which was a berry gazpacho.

That night, the three things that still stand out are the 1. gazpacho 2. cucumber martini 3. sitting behind Isla Fisher.

 

 

 

I know it’s not summer and it’s not exactly like the gazpacho we ate in NYC, but it was absolutely delicious and can still be enjoyed during these “cooler” months.

Now. . .  Spring is juuuust around the corner and these would be perfect to serve when entertaining.

Or just go ahead and crank the heat, pretend it’s summer and enjoy a bowl all to yourself.

 

 

Traditionally, gazpacho is a cold Spanish/Portuguese tomato based soup and is enjoyed during the summertime.

It wasn’t until a few years ago that I could manage the consistency and the fact that it was cold. However, when it’s berries that are involved – maybe it’s the tomatoes that gets me – I’m all for it.

 

 

 

Strawberry Gazpacho

PRINT Recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 cups fresh strawberries, hulled & diced
  • 1 cup sweet onions, chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh raspberries
  • 1 English cucumber, peeled and diced
  • 2-3 tablespoons lemon balsamic [regular balsamic or olive oil will also work]
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • salt + pepper
  • Optional: Ice cubes

Garnish with fresh mint

Directions

In a large bowl, combine strawberries, sweet onion, raspberries, cucumber, balsamic, lime juice and salt + pepper. Mix together, cover and refrigerate for 4-8 hours [or overnight].

Once it’s marinated, place ingredients into the blender, add a few ice cubes (optional)  and puree until smooth.

You may add my lime juice if it tastes to oily. Season with salt + pepper is desired and top with fresh mint.

Serve and Enjoy!

 

note: it’s better the next day

    I’m reading this as I look out the window at snow falling all over the place and wishing soooo desperately for summer…or even a hint of spring. I can’t wait until it’s warm enough for me to want cold food again!

    Ohh this sounds delicious! I don’t care for regular Gazpacho because of the tomatoes but I like the sound of a berry version!

    It’s like you took the essence of summer and threw it in a blender and turned it up to eleven. That looks amazingly good.

    Lisa, this gazpacho looks and sounds amazing – I’ve never combined onion with strawberries, but I love what you’ve done with this drink. I bunch of frozen strawberries from the summer in my freezer, so I’m going to have to attempt this =)

    you can actually serve this in a bowl and eat with a spoon as well, but sometimes its fun [& easy] to enjoy out of little shot glasses.

    Of course, thank you so much for sharing this on your blog! Happy Friday!!
