We grew a lot of tomatoes this year.

Actually, let me say that differently.

My husband grew a lot of tomatoes this year. 

A lot.

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.




  • 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.
