This originally started out as a new cocktail I was creating, but after a while I realized it makes a great quick appetizer "shot." The vodka is so subtle that the gazpacho is really the main attraction.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 Pound chopped tomatoes
  • 1 English cucumber, chopped
  • 1 Teaspoon chopped garlic
  • 1/2 Teaspoon chopped celery

  • 1/2 Cup chopped bacon
  • Pepper, to taste

Directions

 

In a blender, combine all of the ingredients except for the vodka, celery salt, bacon, and pepper and purée until smooth.

Tomato Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Tomato Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
