If you’re entertaining this long weekend or just taking time out to relax, why not give thanks for the return of the sun (hopefully!) and for this season’s bounty with a refreshing glass of summer gazpacho?
If the idea of eating a chilled soup leaves you cold, well think again.
Made from fresh, seasonal produce that includes peppers, tomatoes and cucumber, it can even be prepared a day ahead to help the flavours really develop.
For a twist on tradition, you could also try different combinations adding chillies for a tasty kick or even sweetening with strawberries.
Serve in chilled shot glasses and drink as an appetiser before a barbecue or summer lunch - it's deliciously cooling on a hot day.
Time to savour the taste of summer, knowing that autumn days and ‘back to school’ aren’t that far away…
Happy Bank Holiday weekend!
