Rated 5 out of 5 by Amy7525 from Best Gazpacho Recipe Ever I can't believe no one has reviewed this recipe. I would own a Vitamix just to make this. I love it. For me the additional cucumbers and chopped fresh tomatoes are not optional, and I use a little jalapeno pepper instead of hot sauce. It's better the next day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Al at the beach from Fantastic at the beach! A spectacular recipe but at the beach try adding 1 small bottle of clam juice. Blend in short spurts so it's still just a bit crunchy. Then after all done would the add some cook kernels of corn and float some freshly steamed clams in bowls when serving. Note: I add the Tabasco in each bowl for those who like it on the bland side.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kates from Fresh easy I made this and it was super easy. I used a fresh Jalepo pepper instead of hot sauce. I also added some lime juice and an avocado. Added some pine nuts on top to finish it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Bookworm63 from Too much vinegar for me! Way too much vinegar in this recipe for my taste - my advice if you want to make this is to measure it out separately and add small amounts gradually until you like the taste!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Delicious and simple to make! I make this recipe all the time to rave reviews! So easy to roughly chop vegetables and let Vitamix do all the rest! I use red bell pepper instead of green and throw in a jalapeno pepper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SuzyL from Good Basic Recipe, Easy to play with This makes a good gazpacho and then you can tweak it to needs and tastes easily. I have made it several different times with different ingredients ( such as red peppers instead of green, cilantro, basil, celery, some mushrooms, sometimes with what is at hand and in the garden). Use a good olive oil and enjoy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Chrissy51 from Summer in a bowl! Wonderful as written. I served with a skewer of grilled shrimp atop the Gazpacho.

Rated 1 out of 5 by tigerlille from This “gazpacho” recipe is a pale reflection This may or may not make a tasty cold tomato-based soup, but the recipe in no way resembles an authentic gazpacho, which can best be described as luscious. The real deal is made with 100% fresh tomatoes and red pepper; it is thickened with a bit of dried crusty bread; the best gazpacho uses sherry vinegar. Many recipes use both some red and green peppers; but all red pepper is the most luscious. Do yourself a favor and make the real thing.
