For a great casual summer party, outside have a gazpacho bar. It is cool and refreshing and lets your guests pick and choose what they want in their gazpacho.
Items for gazpacho bar:
Tomato Puree – I made my puree fresh with basil and garlic. I had two types made with beautiful Big Wave Tomatoes red and yellow tomatoes. If you don’t have time or the tomatoes are not in season you can use a bottled puree. There are some excellent brands from Italy.
Bowls of diced cucumber, avocado, and red onion.
Spicy grilled shrimp. Scallops or calamari would be excellent also.
What else would you add???
Now for the contest, just leave a comment and we will randomly select some one to win a Hawaii Farmer’s Market Cookbook and a Cooking with Les Dames D’Escoffier Cookbook.
Contest ends on July 15 2009. You may only enter one time.
