End of Summer Gazpacho

Summer’s almost over, but thankfully we can still squeeze a few good meals out of the last tomatoes and cucumbers of the season!  This gazpacho is super easy to make.  Just throw fresh veggies into the food processor.  Start with the onions (1 small) and cucumbers (2 large or 4 small) — cut into chunks first.

along with some basil, parsley, or cilantro (a large handful of leaves).  Add some splashes of lemon juice, lime juice, or any vinegar you have on hand, along with a generous pinch (at least 1 tsp) of salt and a little pinch of pepper or chili powder.  That’s it.  Eat this soup at room temperature or chill, then enjoy as you dream about the warm, sunny weather that came and went…and the cool, crisp fall weather that’s right around the corner!
