Summer’s Best Gazpacho Recipes

Memorizing a few simple gazpacho recipes is essential if you’re going to survive the rest of the summer without wilting. I’ve collected all versions of this classic Spanish chilled soup, from the most traditional and authentic, to fun creative spins.

CLASSIC gazpacho recipes

If you’re looking to get started with gazpacho, a traditional recipe is the way to go. It’s dead simple, and so much more than the sum of its parts. Grab some ripe tomatoes and some crisp veggies and keep reading…


The fun thing about gazpacho is that once you make it for the first time you can dispense with exact recipes thereafter. The basics can be combined and recombined in many different variations. The must-haves are ripe tomatoes, a good olive oil and Sherry vinegar.

  • AUTHENTIC GAZPACHO ~ I love the bold red color of this simple soup. The rustic croutons add such a nice textural contrast.
  • SPANISH GAZPACHO ~ This recipe is close to what you’d get served in Spain, with a smooth texture, thicken with torn pieces of bread.

FRUIT gazpacho recipes

Tomatoes are technically fruits, so it should come as no surprise that you can make a killer gazpacho with other fruit like apricots!


Apricots stand in for the tomatoes in this refreshing sweet recipe. Any stone fruit would work for this summery treat.

WHITE gazpacho recipes

White gazpacho is one of the most elegant and authentic Spanish variations on this theme. Although they look creamy, they’re made without any dairy ~ the beautiful white color comes from almonds!


This authentic variation on gazpacho is often garnished with halved green grapes, or cubed honeydew melon.

SPIKED gazpacho recipes

I love this idea, it makes so much sense to add a kick to gazpacho, making it part soup, part cocktail. Mix your favorite gazpacho with your favorite spirit and enjoy.


If you’re looking for that wow factor for your next brunch, you’ve just found it!

HEIRLOOM gazpacho recipes

If you ask me, heirlooms make the best gazpacho. It’s like playing with the rainbow and each variety of tomato results in a different hued soup. I love to mix and match the toppings for an explosion of color.


Hopefully this post will inspire you to investigate the world of heirloom tomatoes.

Today I’m making Heirloom Tomato Gazpacho ~ I look forward to making this chilled raw soup from Spain every summer, and this year I’ve changed it up with some gorgeous multi-colored heirloom tomatoes. If you love tomatoes, love to eat healthy, or just love to wow your friends and family, you’re definitely going to love this recipe!

CREATIVE gazpacho recipes

The concept of gazpacho, which is basically juicy raw tomatoes blitzed up with simple seasonings and then chilled, lends itself to the creative touch. These soups break with convention and bring a whole new dimension to gazpacho.


Speaking as a summer corn lover, this one is first on my must-try list.

GREEN Gazpacho Recipes

It really doesn’t get any cooler than a green gazpacho. The green can come from avocados, cukes, peppers, or herbs, but green gazpachos are some of the most refreshing of all.
