Directions

  1. Blanch the tomatoes in a pot of boiling water for about 15 seconds, or until the skins just begin to peel. Immediately remove them from the hot water and plunge them in ice water to stop them from cooking. Peel, core and dice the tomatoes into 1/2 inch pieces.
  2. In a large pot, combine the oil and vinegar and whisk together well. Pour in the tomato juice, garlic, salt and ground black pepper and whisk well again.
  3. Stir in the tomatoes, cucumbers, onions and almonds and combine all the ingredients together thoroughly. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

A few days ago, my buddy Karen and I were discussing soups and I asked her if she ever had a desire to make a cold one. She said that cold soups did not appeal to her and I agreed. Believe it or not that same night my hubby came home and said that he would love it if I would make him Gazpacho. Well, I guess I was about to get my first taste of something that I never thought I'd try. I'm happy to say that I was very pleasantly surprised by this very refreshing dish! I had to think of it as more of a salad than a soup. To this recipe I used only one third cup of oil, I added red and green bell peppers, red onion, six cloves of garlic, fresh basil and oregano, V8 instead of regular tomato juice, I skipped the almonds but used sliced scallions as a garnish. You can pretty much put anything you desire into this delicious soup. I think I might even spoon some over my cottage cheese today for lunch! Thanks Peilin for changing my attitude toward cold soups!

Very good! Light and refreshing but hearty at the same time. This is nice and chunky, unlike most gazpacho recipes that call for pureeing. I added a dash of cayenne to give it a little kick.

I made this last night with tomatoes from our garden. It's nice and chunky. The only thing I'd add next time would be something to spice it up a little more. Otherwise it's a great receipe.
