This is my assignment with the Secret Recipe Club.The aim of the club is that you are allocated a blog from which you have to select a recipe and try it and blog about it.
My assigned blog was Eat Laugh love .The blog writer Denise has a lovely selection of recipes and I immediately fell in love with this Gazpacho Summer salad recipe. I recreated the recipe with a few minor changes.
