Pineapple Gazpacho

Every day in our cafeteria here at Free People they offer the most interesting soups. Since it’s been summer they’ll usually do one chilled option. I’m always intrigued, but never actually like the sample enough to get it for lunch…until the other day. They made this pineapple gazpacho – sounds weird – but I LOVED its mixture of sweet and spicy so much that I ended up devouring it down for lunch. At home I later tried to replicate the dish and found it’s beyond easy. The only thing is, you’ll need a bit of planning ahead since the dish tastes better chilled in the fridge over night.

For the Gazpacho You’ll Need:

1 Pineapple

1 Yellow Pepper

¼ Cucumber

½ Sweet Onion

5 Sprigs Cilantro (stems included)

2 tsp Rice Vinegar

½ tsp Spicy Sriracha Sauce

¼ tsp White Pepper

For The Garnish:

¼ Red Pepper

2 Sprigs Cilantro (leaves only)

Directions:

1. Core & Peel Pineapple. Then cut pineapple, yellow pepper, cucumber, and onion into medium pieces.

2. Throw all gazpacho ingredients into a blender or bowl if you have a hand blender like I do. Puree until texture is smooth.

  1. On our way back to VA from a wedding in Cleveland, my husband and I stopped in Pittsburgh to sleep + eat. We decided on Casbah – a delicious Mediterranean place – and I got a watermelon/strawberry gazpacho with jalapeno, red onion and cilantro. It was so good! (probably would have been delicious as a sweet/savory dessert sauce over vanilla custard too, honestly). I also find it awesome that your cafeteria makes interesting dishes like that. Def not your typical cafeteria food!

  2. I almost never comment, however I looked at a few of the comments on this page Pineapple Gazpacho.
    I actually do have a couple of questions for you if it’s allright.

    Could it be simply me or does it look as if
    like a few of these comments look like they are left by brain dead folks?
    :-P And, if you are writing at additional
    social sites, I’d like to follow everything fresh you have to post.
    Could you list of all of all your shared sites like
    your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
