Strawberries add a fresh, fruity twist to this classic chilled soup. If you wish, choose your favorite herb to sprinkle on as a garnish and to boost the flavor. We recommend chives, basil, or thyme leaves, but many fresh herbs will complement this Strawberry Gazpacho.

Delicious! I love it! But for my family, the strawberries got lost - maybe too early in the season and strawberries not sweet enough? So, I ended up using twice as many strawberries while leaving the rest of the recipe the same - tastes more like what i ate in Spain.

Made this tonight with my dinner after seeing it in a Forks over knives email. It was such a delightful garden party in my mouth. All of the flavors come together to create a satisfying summer treat.

This is nice gazpacho, refreshing and drinkable version. It has the usual gazpacho flavor with strawberries giving it a tartness. Mine was made with a VitaMix and it was necessary to add the broth before blending. It was so much easier than chopping veggies for a chunky version.
