The other night I decided to get a little ambitious and try a first-time recipe. I studied abroad in Spain in college and when it got muy caliente outside, Gazpacho was the preferred lunchtime dish. At first, I was apprehensive about the idea of cold tomato soup, but since I was such a fan of hot tomato soup, how bad could this be?
Well, I got a sweet surprise when I took a sip (they drink it like a smoothie there!) because there was watermelon mixed in! The tanginess of the vinegar with the sweetness of the watermelon and just a touch of tomato kept me coming back for more.
I did my best to replicate the recipe and I am proud to say, taking a sip took me straight back to the Plaza Real in Barcelona where I tried it for the first time. Follow the simple recipe below (honestly, it’s only one step) and you can’t go wrong.
