Serve this super-simple gazpacho as a flavorful and refreshing starter at warm-weather gatherings. You can also make it a meal by adding garnishes like chopped cooked shrimp and diced avocado, chopped hard-boiled eggs and crumbled bacon, or diced smoked or baked tofu.
1/2 cup pepperoncini peppers with brine, peppers stemmed
Finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley for garnish
In a large bowl, stir together tomatoes, cucumbers, pepperoncini peppers and brine and 3 tablespoons of the oil. Working in batches, blend mixture in a blender or food processor until a chunky purée forms. Transfer gazpacho to an airtight container and refrigerate until cold, at least 1 hour or up to 2 days.
Stir gazpacho and ladle into bowls. Garnish with parsley and drizzle with remaining 1 tablespoon oil.
