My husband tells me that my gazpachos are “great but exotic”. The gazpachos he had throughout his life were made with the traditional ingredients like tomatoes, peppers or garlic. I was not sure if he would like this so I made just enough for two. Well the contents of his glass disappeared within a minute or two and he asked if there was any more! Proof that “exotic” is not such a bad thing! Serve this cold and you will be surprised how it really helps to “beat the heat”!
2 medium cucumbers
1 plain yogurt
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 chopped chive
1/2 garlic clove, minced
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 to 3 fresh mint leaves
Wash the cucumbers. Peel them and remove the seeds. Chop them and place them in a blender along with the rest of the ingredients.
Taste and add more salt and pepper, if desired. If it is too thick, just add a bit of water. Refrigerate several hours or overnight. Serve very cold, (with an ice cube, if desired) and garnished with a mint leaf on top.
Enjoy! Xxxx Natascha
