Viroqua Food Co-op Recipe Blog
Incorporating more raw foods into your diet is easy to do in the summer since you can buy it locally or grow & pick it yourself. This recipe is one of my favorites. It reminds me of Grandma & I in the garden, eating as we picked. The tomatoes & watermelon warmed from the sun... the combination & sweetness of the two really make this gazpacho a simple & refreshing meal. Enjoy!
For the next in my "Eating out of the garden" series, we'll use cucumbers and sweet onions. There are some dishes that I can only eat the version that I grew up eating - nobody else's tastes quite right. My mother's cucumber salad is one of those. Fortunately my sister Jenni Gile came to my rescue, she actually had this written down. I'd been winging it, which is fine for me, but harder to share with you. The only thing i might add to this is a little dill, if you have that growing in your garder, just snip off some of the leaves - not the seeds. Save those for pickles
