White Gazpacho

Makes 6 servings

This cold soup is a classic of Spanish cuisine. Almonds give it a lovelyrichness, and the green grape garnish prevents it from being too rich.Make sure to use sherry wine vinegar. There's no substitute for the particularly Spanish flavor it imparts.

Ingredients

1 cup whole blanched almonds
3 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
1 1/2 cups stale Italian or French bread, crusts removed and torn into smallpieces
3 cups ice water
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon sherry wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1 cup seedless green grapes

Instructions

1.Place the almonds, garlic, bread pieces, and 1 cup of the water in the work bowl of a food processor. Process until a smooth paste forms, scraping down the sides of the bowl 3 or 4 times as necessary.

2.With the motor running, add the oil in a slow stream. Add the remaining 2 cups water and process until smooth.

3.Scrape the mixture into a large bowl. Whisk in the vinegar and salt. Refrigerate the soup until it is well chilled, about 1 hour. (It can be refrigerated for up to 6 hours until ready to serve.)

4.Ladle the soup into 6 serving bowls. Garnish with the grapes. Serve immediately.


Baja Shrimp Salad with Avocado Dressing

Makes 4 servings as an appetizer; 2 servings as a main course

For me, nothing evokes the west coast of Mexico like this elementalcombination of shrimp, avocado, and lime. Very good cooked shrimpcan be found in the freezer case of your supermarket. The salad, lettuce and all, can be wrapped in warm corn orflour tortillas.

Ingredients

1 ripe avocado, peeled, pitted, and cut into 1/4-inch dice
1 small, ripe tomato, cored and cut into 1/4-inch pieces
2 tablespoons chopped red onion
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons lime juice
1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
12 ounces medium cooked shrimp, peeled
Green leaf lettuce, for garnish (optional)

Instructions

Combine the avocado, tomato, onion, olive oil, lime juice, and salt in a small bowl. Arrange the shrimp (on top of lettuce, if you like) on 4 plates. Spoon the avocado mixture over each plate. Serve immediately.

    The Best Summertime Cookbook Out There!

    Summertime is just around the corner, and Cool Kitchen is best antidote to complicated cooking. The recipes are unique and delicious - unexpected flavor combinations that really work! Ms. Chattman has terrific time-saving ideas and incorporates ingredients I'd never thought of using before. Especially helpful are the list of staples in the front of the book and the menu samples in the back of the book. You won't put this cookbook back on the shelf all summer!
