Gazpacho is Love

Prep Time 30 mins
Servings 6 servings


  • 6 to matoes
  • 1.5 cups tomato juice aka a 12 oz. can of tomato juice or V8...perfect if you don't use tomato juice for anything else

  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tsp vinegar
  • 1 tsp salt

  • Remove the skin from the tomatoes by putting them in boiling water for 30 seconds, then moving them to cold water.
  • Chop the tomatoes.
  • Mix all the ingredients.
  • Chill the soup until ready to eat.  Serve with tortilla chips.
  • It's that simple!  4 steps and you've got dinner...or, in our case, 3 nights of dinner!
  • Variation (recommended by my Man):  Puree chopped tomatoes in the food processor before adding the rest of the ingredients.  Plus there's a world of vegetables that could be added.
