Primal Gazpacho Nieto

As some of you know, we were fortunate enough to have our wonderful family from Spain visiting for most of the past month.  Henry’s cousin Luis Humberto and wife Marta spent some wonderful times with us at the pool, the lake, and the mountains…  They also shared some amazing traditional Spanish and Catalan dishes with us.  One of these is this Primal Gazpacho that we’d like to now share with all of you.  Gazpacho is traditional Spanish tomato-based raw vegetable soup served cold and favored during the summer months due to its refreshing qualities.  We named this one after them because every time we have this ultra nutritious dish we wish that they could still be here with us.

So this is for you Marta and Luis – thank you! We love and miss you.
