Soup isn’t always synonymous with summer but one of our favorite summer soups is gazpacho, a cold soup made of raw, blended vegetables. Chef / Partner John Chiakulas at Beatrix wows us with his bright Yellow Tomato Gazpacho Soup made with yellow tomatoes, English cucumbers, yellow peppers, jalapenos, fresh garlic and more.

The reason Chef John likes to use yellow tomatoes for his gazpacho?

“Yellow tomatoes are less acidic so it gives the gazpacho a sweeter taste; plus it’s different!”
