Raspberry Blueberry Gazpacho with Fresh Mint
I get so many magazines delivered to my house yet never seem to find the time to read them. However, I found myself thumbing through Bon Appétit and came across a Mixed Berry Gazpacho with Basil by Chef Michael Laiskonis and ripped out the page. It’s a sweet, light summer dessert, similar to a savory Tomato Gazpacho, only made with fruit.
I changing it up slightly using raspberries and mint from my garden and some store bought blueberries. It was so easy to make and a perfect light ending to my meal. They topped theirs with olive oil and fresh cracked pepper, but I kept it simple and made it without. A scoop of frozen yogurt was the perfect finish to this easy light summer dessert.
