Summer Gazpacho With Avocado


Gazpacho, the perfect hot weather soup is simply a salad in liquid form, which means it is both healthy and one of the easiest dishes to make. All you need to get started is a blender and some super tasty, juicy tomatoes, cut into large chunks. Additionally, since there is no need to use a stove top or oven, gazpacho is a great recipe for beginner cooks or those interested in a quick meal with little cleanup.
