Avocado and Yellow Heirloom Tomato Gazpacho

August 21, 2014

Author Notes: The soup can be as thin as water or thick as a dip. Garlic, oil, bread, salt, and ice-cold water are typically added to flavor and/or thicken the soup. Using avocados in this recipe gives the soup definite creaminess. One cup of ice-cold water gave me the ideal consistency and right amount of “chunks” to “chew” on.Art Rodriguez
