You guys. It's suddenly hit me. Summer is all but over.
And to be honest? I'm not exactly sure how I feel about it.
It's the same story every year, really. We wait and wait for it....we try to pack in as much fun as we possibly can....we lose a little sanity in the process....and before we know it, it's all over.
And suddenly we're shopping for school supplies and pinning pumpkin recipes like crazy, but the truth is that part of us really isn't ready to let go.
So if you're anything like me, you start planning last minute vacations to a waterpark (we just got home yesterday) and soaking in as much time as you can by the pool.
And...you start doing everything you can to take advantage of fresh summer produce while it lasts. You start making ALL the summer recipes one last time, like Creamy Cucumber Salad and Creamy Vegetable Lasagna and obviously this Fresh Corn Salad.
Which brings me to this Easy Gazpacho recipe. Which, if I may say so myself, is the BEST gazpacho I've ever tasted.
It's the perfect combo of blended and chunky with a delicious balance of flavors. Like garlic and lemon juice and salt and fresh parsley. It tastes just like summer in a bowl...and to be honest, I could eat it all year round.
Of course, as much as I love the idea of this gazpacho being made with veggies from my own garden, the reality is we never got around to planting one this year.
And truth be told? I didn't even miss it. Because I always know I can find fresh, delicious fruits and vegetables from Pick 'n Save...without all the work.
Between the tomatoes and the cucumbers and the red peppers and onions, it took me one trip and all of 10 minutes to grab everything I needed for this recipe.
And I love the fact that Pick 'n Save partners with local farmers for so much of its fresh produce. It makes not having my own garden feel totally worth it.
