    i made the most delicious HUGE batch of Gazpacho yesterday and let it sit overnight - the flavor is so good today. It was so much easier than I thought it would be.

    i am going to serve it 3 different ways.

    * with crumbled feta cheese on top

    * with sliced avocado on top

    * with jumbo lump crab meat


    Here is the recipe - this makes A LOT so you can cut this in half and still have a nice amount:
    • 1/4 Cup extra-virgin olive oil
    • 4 lemons, juiced
    • 2 to 4 tsp salt (check the saltiness of your tomato juice before salting)
    • ground pepper to taste
    • hot sauce to taste (try not to use a vinegar based hot sauce as the tomatoes are already so acidic)
    • 16 cups organic tomato juice (just tomato not v-8 or garden veg)
    • 8 large, ripe tomatoes - peeled and cubed
    • 1 cup finely chopped red onion
    • 6 to 8 stalks celery, diced
    • 2 large yellow or green bell peppers, diced
    • 2 large cucumbers, de-seeded and diced
    • small to medium bunch of cilantro, chopped
    whish together EVOO, lemon juice, sat and pepper. pour in tomoto juice, stir to mix. add vegetables and cilantro. turn to mix.

    let sit in fridge for at least 1 hour and taste before re-seasoning. season and let sit overnight for best flavor.

    TIP: try to store in glass container b/c of the acid in raw tomatoes.

      No way! Too funny that you just made this - we're having a tapas luncheon tomorrow and I'm serving gazpacho shooters! I just came back from the store and I'm making it today. I'm using a different recipe but yours sounds yummy
