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.

Servings: 10

2 pounds Green Zebra tomatoes, cored and coarsely chopped, plus 1 Green Zebra tomato cut into small wedges for garnish 1 seedless cucumber, unpeeled and coarsely chopped, plus finely diced unpeeled cucumber for garnish1 medium sweet onion, coarsely chopped 1 Hass avocado, halved, pitted and peeled 1 small jalapeno, stemmed and seeded 2 garlic cloves 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice2 tablespoons mint leaves, plus more for garnish 2 tablespoons cilantro leaves 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling Salt and freshly ground pepper
