Mmm a warm summer's day and lovely cold gazpacho. That was the idea anyway... most recipes call for chopping up kilos of fresh tomatoes, one its a hassle and two, there's no point unless you have really delicious tomatoes. So, I found a recipe using tinned tomatoes and it was easy peasy! Try it whilst the sunshine lasts.

1 large bottle passata
120 ml water
30 ml extra-virgin olive oil
1 cucumber, seeds removed chopped into small cubes
1 red pepper chopped into small cubes
1 small onion, chopped into small cubes
4 garlic cloves finely chopped
red chilli, finely chopped
30 ml sherry vinegar
1 bunch chopped parsley, basil or mint(whichever you prefer)

Blend ½ the tomatoes with the water and oil. Add the rest of the ingredients and season to taste. Regrigerate to allow the flavours to mingle until ready to serve.
