Gazpacho is such a summertime dish. Sweet and slightly sour (that will be the tomatoes, cider vinegar, citrus juices and softened dates), mellow spicing (chilli, cumin, coriander, parsley) and just an overall delicious mix of creamy and crunch. This is one of those dishes that you just feel better for eating.
This recipe also calls for soaked dates: I recommend you cover the dates in a little boiling water (just enough to cover) for an hour before making. Alternatively you can use medjool dates (don’t forgot to remove the stones!) which are much softer and also larger, so halve the number required. It’s also really nice to use a mix of tomatoes if you can – yellow, red, plum, cherry, heirloom etc. It just looks so beautiful in the bowl, but if you can only get standard tomatoes then I recommend going for a mix of large and cherry, all on the vine for added flavour.
