Gazpacho Salad

It’s a salad! It’s a summer soup! It’s both, yum.

Here’s the latest recipe I’ve come up with for our Fire Cider Recipe Book due out late this fall, isn’t that right MVB Printmaker?!

Chop two large garden fresh tomatoes into bite sized pieces; thinly slice a ¼ of a medium white onion, thin slice or chop one medium cucumber.

Add crumbled mild goat feta and top with chopped fresh basil, about a handful will do.

Add an ounce or more of Fire Cider and a few healthy splashes of olive oil.  Mix well, taste and add more Fire Cider and salt to taste.  The tomatoes will give off a lot of delicious juice so plan to eat this chopped salad/soup with a big spoon.

Serves 2

A note about tomatoes: for me, cooked tomatoes are way too sweet to eat.  I have been eating small servings of fresh tomatoes this season with raw onion and Fire Cider, both of which help keep Candida in balance.

    recipe is looking awesome, as always.
    if on a strict candida diet, are we not supposed to cook tomatoes?

      Thank you Diana! If on a strict Candida balancing diet I would not include tomatoes at all. Otherwise, a serving now and then of fresh tomatoes is fine. Cooking tomatoes, like carmalizing onions, concentrates the sugars making it even sweeter. I get a sugar reaction from eating tomato sauce so I very rarely eat it or will only have a few bites : – )
