On Gazpacho

I’m sure that I’ve mentioned Buffalo on here a few times before, but this recipe is a Buffalo ORIGINAL from The Park Country Club. Now, every summer, they would make this gazpacho and it was amazing! I mean, it was cool, fresh, tart, sweet, and when it was topped with their secret avocado cream, THE. BOMB. DOT. COM. Ugh, I just made this myself and I want to pour one more bowl even! Man oh man. SO! With summer FINALLY arriving to us all (at least, I hope it has….sorry if I hasn’t yet), this soup is an easy way to keep things cool and leave you full, while being INCREDIBLY healthy at the same time! This will become an absolute staple remake, I promise! And given today is my birthday, it’s a great way to start it!

Hoping all of you reading this are staying safe and well!
