Green Zebras are heirloom tomatoes with a striped pattern; they are sweet like red tomatoes but give this gazpacho a lovely jade hue. To make the chilled soup extra tangy, use tomatillos or unripe red tomatoes instead of Green Zebras.

  1. 2 pounds Green Zebra tomatoes, cored and coarsely chopped, plus 1 Green Zebra tomato cut into small wedges for garnish
  2. 1 seedless cucumber, unpeeled and coarsely chopped, plus finely diced unpeeled cucumber for garnish
  3. 1 medium sweet onion, coarsely chopped
  4. 1 Hass avocado—halved, pitted and peeled
  5. 1 small jalapeño, stemmed and seeded
  6. 2 garlic cloves
  7. 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  8. 2 tablespoons mint leaves, plus more for garnish
  9. 2 tablespoons cilantro leaves
  10. 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  11. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  1. In a blender, combine half each of the coarsely chopped green tomatoes, cucumber and onion with the avocado, jalapeño, garlic, lime juice and 1 cup of cold water and puree until smooth. Transfer the puree to a large bowl.
  2. Add the remaining coarsely chopped green tomatoes, cucumber and onion to the blender along with the 2 tablespoons of mint, the cilantro and 1/4 cup of olive oil and pulse to a chunky puree. Add the puree to the bowl and stir well. Refrigerate the soup until well chilled, about 1 hour. Season the gazpacho with salt and pepper and ladle it into chilled bowls. Garnish the cold soup with the tomato wedges, diced cucumber, mint leaves and a drizzle of olive oil and serve.
Make Ahead The green gazpacho can be stored in an airtight container and refrigerated overnight.

Suggested Pairing

At Katie Lee's party, the guests drank a vibrant, lemony Sauvignon Blanc from New York with this refreshing soup. A good choice would be a Sauvignon Blanc from a cool climate, like New Zealand's Marlborough region.
