Peach Gazpacho

With the summer quickly coming to a close, I thought it was only appropriate to share my absolute favorite recipe from this summer. It’s a refreshing spin on a classic dish, and the best part is that it’s surprisingly insanely easy to make. The secret ingredient: white peach balsamic vinegar replaces the traditional red wine vinegar. You may recognize the peach balsamic from other recipes I’ve posted, and it makes an excellent salad dressing or dip for veggies on its own. I originally bought it at a boutique near the beach I go to in New Jersey. I couldn’t find anything that even came remotely close to it here in Nashville so I order it from back up north 🙂
