Gazpacho Shooters

Mar/Apr 2008

Ingredients:

  • 2 large tomatoes
  • 1 large tomato, finely diced
  • 1/2 c. finely diced, peeled cucumber
  • 1/2 c. finely diced, seeded red bell pepper
  • 2 green onions, minced
  • 1/4 c. tomato juice
  • 2 T. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 T. champagne vinegar or mild white wine vinegar
  • 1 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 t. jalapeño chile with seeds, minced
  • Sea salt & fresh ground black pepper
  • Slivers of green onion (garnish)

Directions:

Place the whole tomatoes in a food processor and purée. Pour into a bowl and stir in the remaining ingredients. Set in the fridge to cool and give the flavours time to mellow before serving. To serve, fill a shooter glass with the gazpacho and garnish with a thin sliver of green onion. Makes 2 shooters per person.

Note: If you prefer your gazpacho smooth, blend the ingredients in a food processor. If necessary, thin by adding tomato juice.
