Gazpacho is one of those cold soup recipes that instantly cools you off during the hot and humid months of summer, making it a favorite for easy entertaining. Adding it to your summer entertaining menus is actually a wonderful idea!

Gazpacho is a wonderful make-ahead recipe that just gets better with time.

Simply whirl it up in the blender, pour it into a large airtight, glass bowl and store it in the refrigerator for us to three days! Then, when ready to serve for a party, just whirl it one last time in the blender and pour into individual shot glasses for serving a crowd or larger glasses for a larger serving.

I love pouring gazpacho into small glasses and placing on a tray filled with ice for an easy, elegant serve yourself type appetizer at parties. Guests simply pick up the glass from the tray and have a small, crisp and cool appetizer ready for them.

My recipe includes just a touch of a zesty kick that you can use when you make your gazpacho or totally omit, it is completely up to you. I love the taste of horseradish in my gazpacho, but if you prefer a bit more mainstream gazpacho, just omit it.

Regardless of how you serve this gazpacho or if you like it zesty or a bit more tame, just give it a try the next time your forecast calls for hot, sticky weather. It’ll cool you off for sure!

    I make this all the time. Have never added the cumin, but open to try. I like celery seed or celery salt in mine and a bit of horseradish only if I feel like it. As a Canadian I like to use Motts Clamato juice…. tastes like a Bloody Caesar and add Vodka to your serving if it is used as an appetizer/ cocktail if you wish and I admit I sometimes do for more special occaisions. Enjoy your site and the comments.

    I love gazpacho and have served it in bowls as an appetizer with a small shots of Grey Goose sitting in crushed ice for those who would like “bloody Mary” gazpacho. Always a big hit! Also in answer to the question above about peeling the tomatoes, I make it in my food processor and have never had to peel them. Love your blog and I’m able to figure out the nutritional values myself. I always have to make adjustments because I’m limited to 500 mg of sodium/day but I am almost always able to use your great ideas and recipes. Thanks for all the hard work and love you pour into your blog.

      I know you asked this a long time ago, but thought someone else might want to know. I made some gazpacho last week (not this recipe, but I will try this one soon), and did NOT peel my tomatoes. But I used a Vitamix which really chopped them up well. If you are using a good blender or food processor, it should be fine.
