Easy healthy recipes: Gazpacho

Updated on May 13, 2013

Gazpacho is a beverage but we could say it is a liquid salad, it can be a perfect appetizer to substitute a traditional salad, like the Genovese Salad, or as an accompaniment.

Normally you should drink it in summer as a refreshing drink as it is served cold but nowadays it is served as an alternative to salads in many Mediterranian restaurants and also can be a good way to use ripe tomatoes.

If you prefer you can serve it in a dish with diced pepper, tomato, cucumber and egg to improve the presentation.
