When temperatures in Shanghai go up, just pass me a bowl of tomato gazpacho and an iced tea. While I’ve made lots of tomato gazpacho in the past, I’ve been feeling a bit creative these days and decided to give my gazpacho recipe a great big kick in the butt and create my new favorite gazpacho recipe ever… Cherry Nectarine Gazpacho. 

I didn’t think the flavors would work as well together as they did. I really didn’t. But oh my did they! As a neighbor said, I would never think to order this at a restaurant, but wow! It’s really good!

The gazpacho has a hint of sweetness. A mild acidity. Just enough heat. It’s deliciousness in every spoonful and believe me you’ll be eating spoonful after spoonful of this tasty chilled soup. 

The secret?

White wine vinegar. It’s flavors are mild and perfectly compliments the acidity of the tomatoes and cherries. And of course the fact that the soup was made using super fresh red Goma Greens cherries, which are less sweet than the standard American-style bing variety, so the soup wasn’t overpowered by the cherry flavor.

The Cherry Nectarine Salsa is a must for beautiful presentation. It also offers an extra texture and pop of flavor, so make sure to add a generous portion to each bowl.

What an unusual mix of flavours - I agree gazpacho is a go to in the summer in Shanghai but I'm keen to give this combo a go. Hubble loves cherries and they are so cheap at the moment.
