Cookie Remix manuscript changes + a busy calendar does NOT equal TONS OF TIME TO POST RECIPES ON BLOG! :(

I've been absent and I'm so sorry. My manuscript has been sent back to the publisher (yippy SKIPPPYYYY!) and my boys and I are marching on through the total fun craziness of August. I'm squeezing baking and cooking and blogging in when I can.

The idea for this salad came to me as I perused through my archives recently and found this delicious Cherry Gazpacho. Since creating my cookbook I've constantly been thinking of ways to reinvent recipes. I suddenly saw this delicious fresh soup in salad form.

HOW TO MAKE CHERRY GAZPACHO SALAD

You'll love the simplicity of this salad that's perfect for a beautiful picnic or BBQ!!

  • Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well and refrigerate until ready to serve. Scoop a few spoonfuls into your bowl for a tantalizing treat!

COOKING TIPS FOR THIS SALAD

This salad is delicious and best enjoyed the day its made. However, if you want to prepare some of it ahead of time, you can chop up the fruit and vegetables and don't mix in the dressing until you are ready to serve. Keep the chopped ingredients in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for best results.

WHAT IS GAZPACHO FRUIT SALAD

Fruit Gazpacho is a cold soup made of blended fruit and vegetables, a spin on the classic vegetable gazpacho, popular in Spain. This Gazpacho fruit salad recipe is a spin off on that idea, but rather than blending the ingredients together, instead enjoying chunks of fresh ingredients mixed together with a simple flavorful red-wine vinaigrette. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Cherry season isn't done! Go grab these ingredients for your next summer gathering. You and your friends will not be disappointed.

CHERRY SEASON

Sweet cherries, like the common and popular Bing and Rainier are great for eating, cooking and baking from May through August. If you are lucky enough to live near a cherry orchard, picking your own would be amazing! You could pop them in your mouth as you drove home - they are like candy! I'm sure I'd struggle to get any into a dessert or meal though.
