Company Gazpacho – New Jersey Fresh

Rate this post

Gather your tomatoes while you may, summer is a-flying.

Apologies to the Book of Wisdom

Hi there,

There is something truly special about sinking your teeth into a sun-ripened tomato during the peak of summer. Bursting with a delicate balance of sweet and tangy flavors, fresh tomatoes serve as a mouthwatering reminder of the warm days and vibrant energies that summer brings. Just one bite is enough to transport your palate to a world of sensations, making it the perfect ingredient for refreshing salads, heavenly BLT sandwiches, and the king of cold soup, gazpacho.

Before the summer ends, head to your local farmer’s market or pick some vines from your garden, and let the delicious flavors of fresh tomatoes transport your taste buds to summer paradise. Invite some friends over and serve them Company Gazpacho. Or make yourself the company and have it for dinner with a loaf of good bread and a glass of rose.

  1. Yes, please!
    You have made my mouth water with your tasty description! I’m headed to the kitchen and grabbing my apron!

  2. I cannot tell you how much I love a good gazpacho. I often serve it up as a course when I entertain. I use a traditional Spanish recipe but, man New Jersey can produce wonderful summer tomatoes, and your recipe looks fantastic.

    Thanks for sharing with us.

    I love gazpacho and this looks like a great recipe. Thanks!!

  4. This is exactly what we need in the middle of a screaming hot summer. I imagine the bread gives the gazpacho extra body. If I had known you’d be making this, I could have provided you with several loaves of day-old bread… Haha

      • I learned so much at King Arthur! Most of our class creations were yeast breads, but I picked up several new techniques that will take my sourdough breads to a new level!

    Hi, Bernadette – I love gazpacho and haven’t had it in ages. Thanks for the recipe. I’ll definitely give it a try!

    Your gazpacho looks beautiful, summer in a bowl!

  9. I eat tomatoes like fruit and at the moment am getting a mighty fine winter crop from mine (here in South east Queensland they tend to do better outside of summer). That being said, I’ve never really gotten into the cold soup thing…although enjoy hot soup all year round. This one, though, looks and sounds very bright and pretty indeed.

  10. 100 Country Trek – Hello. Nice to meet you. My journey to cover as much of the world as possible began in Costa Rica in 2003. This is a story in itself, but for now I'll tell the short version . On a hike around Manuel Antonio I started chatting with a fellow hiker from Belgium. He told me he had a trip planned to visit Borneo within a few weeks of his return home. He then went on to say he had been to at least fifty different countries. That was when the travel bug bit me. I haven't stopped going since and the journey has been so incredible . It is here that I will share some of the incredible travel experiences .

    Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe. Anita

  11. Wonderful way to use up our fresh garden tomatoes!

  12. Thanks for a reminder that summer is the perfect time to make this delicious soup. I have never included bread in my recipe, but I will give it a try next time. I can see how it would create a little more texture to the soup.

    • Thanks for stopping by Suzanne. Yes, it does add texture to the soup and make it seem less like salsa and more like soup. I just visited to blog and it is beautiful.
