Avocado Gazpacho

by Erica Dinho on August 20, 2010

Avocado gazpacho

I love traditional tomato gazpacho and I have a special love for aguacates or avocados, hence this recipe. I can just eat avocados as a snack with a sprinkle of salt on top, and I always have them in my house. I was trying to make something different with them and that is how this recipe came to mind.

This Avocado Gazpacho is a terrific appetizer for summer parties.

Buen provecho!

I tried tonight, It has a very strong flavor and is very tasty. I little overwelming. It is good in moderation not a big heaping bowl. may be like 4 to 6oz per serving. I poured myself about 12 and it was to much. Must be really cold!
