Summer of Salads: Garden Supper

I went to a friend’s the other evening and had the most scrumptious supper plucked mainly from the garden. The menu was gazpacho, beetroot and carrot salad and radish pods with lettuce. Rabbit food to some, delicious to me!!

Gazpacho recipe

What you need:

1 cucumber

1 red pepper

3 big tomatoes

2 garlic cloves

1 small red chilli

1/3 of a red onion sliced

red wine vinegar, olive oil and salt & pepper to taste

What you need to do:

Put all the ingredients in a blender until they reduce to a thick soup consistency. Transfer it to a bowl and add ice cubes.

Don’t blend it too much so that the ingredients are left a little bitty. I’ve always had the soup with a smooth consistency but it is really good with more texture.
