Stay Cool with Strawberry Gazpacho
Tuesday, May 5, 2015
Hailing from the Spanish region of Andalusia, gazpacho has become one of our favorite dishes for warmer days. It’s refreshing, cool, and super healthy! It’s also a totally vegetarian dish so it’s fit for the whole family.
Now we’ll teach you how to make your own strawberry gazpacho, a sweet-savory soup recipe guaranteed to keep you cool any summer day. This recipe was shared with us by Gretchen Sterling from the Pasadena Certified Farmer’s Markets, who was inspired by her recent trip to Italy and Spain. Hear more about her trips in our story here.
