When making this recipe with children or adults, the key is to focus on how easy it is to make because all the ingredients are fresh and delicious on their own! I literally adjust this recipe all depending on what we receive in our farm share box. Have your family taste as they prepare it and decide what they think is missing. For example, if you have a lemon but no vinegar, add that as your acid. If you have a green pepper vs. red, that is great, too. Keep trying together and adjust based on personal tastes.
Serve cold and from a cup and tell the story of how Gazpacho was eaten by Spanish field workers hundreds of years ago to nourish them as they worked!
