Tomatillo Avocado Gazpacho only requires a blender and a few ingredients. This chilled soup is refreshing, tangy, and as spicy as you want it to be. Plus Tomatillo Avocado Gazpacho is oil-free and healthy!
I love using salsas and hot sauces in recipes, especially LA VICTORIA® Brand. They sure make creating recipes like Tomatillo Avocado Gazpacho a breeze.
And did you know they are celebrating their 100th anniversary? That’s right! LA VICTORIA® Brand started in 1917.
To celebrate, I’m making all sorts of recipes using their delicious products.
And they want YOU to join in the celebration, too!
But don’t worry if you can’t make it. They have plenty of amazing recipes created by local professional chefs for you to try.
And so do I!
I use it to make Mango Habanero Hearts of Palm Ceviche.
And check out the Blistered Brussels Sprouts and Cauliflower from Chef Eduardo Ruiz.
I decided to make my own version based on this recipe which I call Warm Brussels Sprouts & Cauliflower Salad.
It’s a great side dish for Chef Christine F. Rivera’s Wood Grilled Adobe Squash Taco.
Warm Brussels Sprouts and Cauliflower Salad
Roasted vegetables get a flavor kick when served with a pistou made from fresh herbs and salsa verde. Enjoy as a side dish or make it a meal by serving this salad over quinoa.
For the roasted vegetables
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Toss the Brussels sprouts and cauliflower with the olive oil and salt. Spread the vegetables out on the baking sheet in a single layer.
Roast until the vegetables begin to brown, about 15 to 20 minutes.
Remove the vegetables from the oven and allow to cool for about 5 minutes.
Add the Salsa Verde Pistou ingredients to a high-speed blender. Blend until smooth.
To serve, place the vegetables in a serving dish and drizzle with the Salsa Verde Pistou.
This recipe was adapted from Blistered Brussels Sprouts and Cauliflower by Chef Eduardo Ruiz.
And of course I’m really excited to share with you my recipe for Tomatillo Avocado Gazpacho! Doesn’t it look easy to make from the video?
This is why I love cooking with LA VICTORIA® Brand. It makes your dishes so flavorful without spending a lot of time and money on other ingredients.
And the flavors really compliment the West Coast style dishes I enjoy.
I like to top this gazpacho verde with extra cucumber and avocado, plus roasted corn, red onion, and cilantro. But you can use whatever ingredients you like, such as green, red, or yellow bell peppers or tomatoes.
This green gazpacho is fantastic to make when the weather is warm. All you need to do is throw your ingredients in your blender and let the soup chill for about an hour. Or you can make it ahead of time and refrigerate it overnight until you’re ready to eat.

Tomatillo Avocado Gazpacho
Tomatillo Avocado Gazpacho is easy to make with only a few ingredients! Serve it with some lime wedges and your favorite toppings such as diced cucumber, avocado, red onion, roasted corn, or fresh cilantro.
Add the LA VICTORIA® Brand Salsa, cucumber, and avocado to a blender. Blend until smooth.
Cover and refrigerate for about an hour (or more).
Add salt, to taste, and serve with your favorite toppings.
If you're like me and don't like your food overly spicy, I recommend using the mild salsa. But if you want more of a kick, try it with the medium salsa. You can even mix half and half!
