F-Factor Chunky Gazpacho




Although traditional gazpacho is pureed, this chunky version is inspired by the utterly delicious recipe served at the Golden Pear in the Hamptons.


1 green pepper, seeded and chopped fine

1 red pepper, seeded and chopped fine

3–4 tomatoes, skinned, seeded, and chopped fine

2 large cucumbers, peeled, seeded, and chopped fine

1 large bunch cilantro, chopped fine

1 large red onion, chopped fine

3 large cloves garlic, minced

1 teaspoon Tabasco—or 2 jalapeno peppers, finely chopped

1 46-ounce can tomato juice

¼ cup olive oil

Juice of 3 limes (optional)

1 teaspoon Splenda

Salt and pepper to taste

Garnish: cilantro leaves for each bowl


  1. Carefully chop all the vegetables the same small size, then mix in with the tomato juice, oil, optional lime juice, Splenda, salt, and pepper.
  2. Let chill and cure in the refrigerator overnight.
  3. When ready to serve, ladle into bowls and top each one with a cilantro leaf.
