Gazpacho with a tropical twist


I am honored that Lazaro has asked me to be the guest blogger for Lazaro Cooks! today. Since Lazaro and Nancy share the hosting, I thought it might be fun to make a soup that would suit both of their tastes. I chose gazpacho, but decided to garnished it with a tropical twist – mango. After all, Lazaro does live in south Florida.

  1. Sam: What a delicious way to honor the tastes of both Nancy and Lazaro! I love cold soups. I can't wait to gather the ingredients for this one. It will be perfect for our now sultry (thought I'd left that back in Charleston) summer lunches. Thanks!

    Best,
    Bonnie
