Southeast Asian Gazpacho

Savor Summer's Tomatoes in Southeast Asian Gazpacho

Hot days may zap your appetite and enthusiasm to toil in the kitchen over a hot stove, but that doesn't mean that you need to resort to a bowl of cereal for dinner. Served thoroughly chilled, light, bright gazpacho is a classic Spanish solution to the dog days of Summer, and for good reason. This recipe takes a subtle twist on the tradition by adding Thai basil, ginger, and rice wine vinegar for a Southeast Asian spin on this much-beloved style of soup. Try it now while tomatoes shine; it, and any other tomato-based gazpacho, isn't worth eating in the off-season. Get the refreshing recipe.
