Notes

Use fresh and ripe pineapple for the best flavor. If the pineapple is not ripe, the gazpacho may not be sweet enough.

Cucumber can be substituted with other types of cucumbers, such as English or hothouse cucumbers.

To prevent the gazpacho from becoming too thick, make sure to seed the cucumber and remove excess water. For a spicy kick, don’t omit the cayenne pepper or add more if you prefer.

Adjust the amount of garlic to your taste, and mince it finely to avoid any bitter flavor.

You can roast the garlic before mincing for a deeper flavor. Smoked paprika adds a nice smoky flavor, but regular paprika works as a substitute.

Vegetable juice can be substituted with V8 juice or a homemade vegetable juice blend.

You can make the gazpacho ahead of time, but the flavors will meld together better if chilled for at least 30 minutes. Garnish with extra cilantro, a sprinkle of smoked paprika, or a dollop of sour cream for added flavor and texture.
