Georgia Summer Gazpacho

Georgia Grown


  • 2 lbs very ripe fresh tomatoes
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 clove garlic
  • ¼ Vidalia onion
  • 1 Anaheim pepper, or ½ medium red bell pepper (or any other mild pepper except for green bell peppers. Something with a tiny bit of heat provides balance but isn’t necessary.)
  • 2 tsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ c Oliver Farm Infused Sunflower oil
  • ¼ c extra virgin olive oil


  1. Peel cucumber and cut into coarse chunks. Halve and core tomatoes and cut into coarse chunks. Peel onion and cut into chunks. Halve, de-seed and de stem pepper and cut into chunks. Peel garlic.
  2. Put everything into a high-speed blender and blend on high at least two minutes until the mixture is very smooth – it should be a dark pink color. With the blender still running, add salt and vinegar. In a slow and steady stream, drizzle in the oils, and blend until mixture is airy and completely emulsified. It will turn a bright orange with the addition of the oils. Chill until mixture is completely cool, 3-6 hours.
