Adapted from a Food and Wine recipe
Daughter Miriam asked for Spanish tri-tip for her birthday dinner. Looking for side dishes to go with the beef, gazpacho would be an obvious choice, but Miriam has been “off” garlic and onions lately—and gazpacho is really just salsa (tomatoes, onions, chilies, cilantro, and garlic) that has been blended into a cold soup. Searching the internet, I found a recipe for “white gazpacho“—made with apples, grapes, almonds and cucumber. A little tinkering and it would meet Miriam’s dietary needs.

I am making a Spanish tapas dinner for this Sunday. This whole meal started because Miriam wanted this cold tomato soup. Gazpacho may be served as a tapas. I made this gazpacho a bit simpler than my last, simply because was making so many other dishes. Jan thinks of this dish as salsa soup.

I finally have a little time to start surfing through the sites of the people who have liked my recipes in the past three years. I have religiously kept track of everyone who has ever “liked” one of my recipes, but I have had little time to do more than just visit their “about” pages. This summer, I have been working my way through other people’s recipes. When I saw Caitlin’s recipe for Yellow Gazpacho I knew I had to do something like it.

Traditional gazpacho always has bread in it, but modern variations frequently leave it out. Jan thinks of this dish as salsa soup. With Miriam’s soft food diet and Chris’ keto diet I can make all three of them happy by serving the bread as toasted croutons on the side.
