3. White Gazpacho

This version has a completely different taste than all the other gazpachos that we’ve tried. The grapes, lemon, and cucumber make it very light, citrusy and fresh, while the almonds add richness to it. You can make it in five minutes (well almost), you only need a few ingredients, it’s raw, it’s vegan and it’s the perfect food to fight the heat with.

2. Lobster Blts.

They are entirely too simply, albeit costing an arm and a leg if you can find some lobster and even adding another arm and a leg if you want to do two tails per sandwich… can you say super high maintenance?
