Cucumber Grape Gazpacho

A cold and rainy weekend is behind us, and the sun has come out. So, I am taking advantage of this nice weather and will be relaxing outside and soaking up the sun's warm rays. It's a perfect time to whip up a batch of this cool, refreshing, super easy, and healthy cucumber grape gazpacho. This gazpacho pairs nicely with grilled pork and a crisp, light sauvignon blanc. Come on, get into the kitchen - nothing can be easier than this!

Here are the ingredients you will need for the gazpacho:
  • 3 English cucumbers, peeled and coarsely chopped
  • 2 cups green or red grapes
  • 1/4 -1/2 serrano chile, to taste
  • 1 cup nonfat plain yogurt
  • 1/2 - 1 cup water
  • 1/2 -1 tsp sherry vinegar, to taste
  • kosher salt to taste
For the garnish:
  • 1 English cucumber, peeled and finely diced
  • 1 cup grapes, halved
  • serrano chile, thickly sliced (optional)
Place the gazpacho ingredients in a blender and pulse until smooth. Strain the gazpacho into a serving bowl using a strainer or a food mill with a very fine setting. Garnish with diced cucumber, grapes, and slices of chile.
