This gazpacho is perfectly balanced with a smidge of golden balsamic or sherry vinegar to make your mouth water. And the Rye Croutons are a revelation..

Heirloom Tomato Gazpacho with Rye Croutons
Chef Erik Johnson

Serves 4-6 as a first course

5 lbs              colorful heirloom tomatoes
1 small           red onion, finely diced
1/8 cup          golden balsamic, sherry or champagne vinegar
                    salt and pepper 
                    Rye Croutons (recipe below)

Fill a small stock pot with 8 quarts of water. Bring to a boil and add salt. (If you don't have a large stock pot, you can use a smaller pot and work in batches.)  Make an ice bath.

Core each tomato and slice a small x on the bottom.

Place cored tomatoes in the boiling water for about a minute or until skins start peel back where you cut the “x”. Transfer tomatoes to the ice bath. Let cool for about 2 minutes before peeling tomatoes.

Place peeled tomatoes into a food processor and pulse until mostly liquid, but leaving some texture. Add the finely diced onion and vinegar. Season the gazpacho with salt and pepper until it tastes good!

              salt & pepper

Preheat oven to 350ºF.
