Our bad: We forgot to publish this delicious mango gazpacho recipe in the height of summer gazpacho season.
But it’s still warm out; and this recipe from Vermont Creamery, served with fromage blanc sorbet, is worth your attention.

1 cup cold water
1 cup tomato juice
8 large tomatoes, peeled, seeded, and diced

¼ cup red onion, minced
1 clove garlic, minced

*Add 2 teaspoons sugar if the mango and tomato are not quite ripe.
8 ounces fromage blanc
1/8 cup fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon orange zest
Zest of 1 lime
1 teaspoon sugar
Ingredients For Sorbet
1. GAZPACHO: Place all ingredients except the orange zest in a large bowl or container overnight. Adjust seasonings in the morning. If the mixture is too chunky, pulse half of it with an immersion blender or a hand mixer.
2. SORBET: Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and put in freezer 2 hours before serving. Use a small melon baller or sorbet scoop. Place sorbet on top of gazpacho.
