We grew a lot of tomatoes this year.
Actually, let me say that differently.
My husband grew a lot of tomatoes this year.
Despite sharing some with our neighborhood friends, humans and non-humans alike (we’re talking squirrels, possums, raccoons and yes, a skunk!), we are left with big and small and medium size tomatoes and we are not complaining!
I have made roasted tomato soup, tomato tarts, greek salads, caprese salads, tomato focaccia, and oh so many other dishes.
The easiest of all might be this ‘recipe’ I am sharing here because it does not require any cooking, or really, any recipes! Below is a suggestion of what you can combine together for a delicious bowl of late summer gazpacho.
EASY LATE SUMMER GAZPACHO
- 1-2 cups Tomatoes
- 1 large Cucumber
- 2-3 stalks Celery
- 1-2 medium size Sweet pepper
- 1 small Onion
- 2-3 cloves Garlic
- handful of Fresh parsley, basil or other fresh herbs
- 2-3 tablespoon fresh Lime juice
- a few drops tabasco sauce
- Salt and Pepper to taste
Blend everything in a food processor until soupy.
Refrigerate at least 1 hour, and serve cold or at room temperature.
