Dream Date: Pineapple Cucumber Gazpacho
As you may have heard, it was a bit toasty on the East Coast this weekend. Inspired by a recipe I made years ago from a Pure Food and Wine cookbook, I made a very lazy, very delicious gazpacho. My 9 year niece was my sous chef. You see? Lazy!
Here's what you do, lazybones. Chop (or, get your gastronomically inclined young relation to do so) equal parts pineapple and peeled and seeded cucumber. Pulse most of the pineapple and cucumber in a blender with a handful of cilantro, a seeded jalapeño, a pinch of sea salt, and the juice of half a lime until smooth. Add the rest of the pineapple and cucumber and pulse a bit. Top with chopped macadamia nuts. Game over.
