Cucumber & Herb Gazpacho

Cucumber and herb gazpacho by Amelia Freer

This dish is from my #EatInSeason: Summer Inspiration.

This is a velvety, iced, super refreshing gazpacho soup packed with antioxidants and goodness. It’s perfect to make ahead – just keep it chilled in the fridge and make sure to give it a good stir before serving.
