It was quite refreshing....and surprisingly filling Kat!

This sounds great. I still dream of a gazpacho I had in Italy.


Hi Christina - This was suprisingly easy (and delish)!


I made a HIGHLY modified version of your recipe, substituting an heirloom cherry tomato box that was on the verge of going off (from Costco) and English muffins for the bread. Nonetheless, it was great! The only downside - I only got a couple of bites as my wife and friends ate all the rest before I even tried it!!


Amazingly simple....and good, huh Campy?


Just one more thanks as I make this for the 4th, maybe 5th time this summer. I've from the version above to super traditional (which is a great way to impress with little effort). Last time (and today) is my "fridge" recipe - Costco Roma's, eggs, oil and prosciutto + whatever bread is in the house. In this heat, it's the best snack/lunch/dinner :D


I'm glad you found a "keeper" recipe. I've made about 5-6 times myself. It's been great during the recent hot and muggy weather. Thanks for letting me know how things turned out as well.


I've been making a version that uses half a cantaloupe, 2 medium tomatoes, and a seeded cucumber, blended with olive oil, lemon juice, and red wine vinegar. A pinch of salt. Ditto with your adding red serrano slices at the table. No bread, though, the tomatoes were pretty meaty and the cantaloupe helps thicken it, too. Something salty, like the ham, is a good idea for garnish--gonna try that next time. I crumbled some queso fresco on top.


Sounds great alnc......though we enjoy the simplicity of this classic version.
