A refreshing bowl of gazpacho makes for a light and refreshing appetizer on a hot summer's day. An ingredient that creates a welcomed twist to this classic recipe is adding strawberries to the mix. This may sound like an unusual pairing by adding strawberries to a soup but let's not forget that tomatoes are a fruit, so they pair perfectly together. Gazpacho traditionally has bread added to this chilled soup to help thicken it. However, adding strawberries helps to thicken up Strawberry Soup because the pectin in strawberries makes this chilled dish vegan and gluten-free.

Strawberries, tomatoes, red bell peppers, fresh cucumbers, white balsamic vinegar, lime juice, onions, garlic, and cilantro are blended with a touch of olive oil to add some richness to this chilled soup. So tasty, refreshing, and full of summer flavors.  

What are the health benefits of strawberries?

Strawberries pack a lot of nutrients in one little berry and are named a superfood for a good reason. They're high in antioxidants, fiber, and vitamin C. Strawberries also have minimal calories. So feel free to munch away. 

How do you know if strawberries are bad?

The first sign that your berries have gone bad is white fuzzy mold that will be very visible. Another way to tell that your strawberries are spoiled is they've turned very soft and mushy instead of their usual firm texture. 

How long do strawberries last in fridge?

Unfortunately, fresh strawberries don't last long after being picked. Aim to eat them within 4-5 days to ensure they don't spoil. 

How long do cooked strawberries last?

Cooked strawberries will last in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
