This Turmeric CBD Infused Gazpacho Salad Should be on your Summer Menu

Do you crave light and refreshing recipes during these hot summer days? Then you will love this vibrant salad inspired by the flavors and ingredients found in gazpacho soup. Whether you're growing your own tomatoes this summer or grabbing some fresh from the store, this is a great recipe to help use up those luscious savory fruits while they're at their peak. This recipe has plenty of flavor thanks to all the fresh veggies and a zippy dijon-infused vinaigrette made with cold-pressed olive oil and red wine vinegar. It works well as both a main salad or a side dish.  

This recipe is the perfect example of how to infuse your recipes with the powers of hemp CBD. You can utilize our nano hemp CBD extracts in recipes you may already be whipping up - like raw dressings and sauces. In this particular case, the earthy and peppery flavor of our Turmeric Enhanced CBD 600 mg goes perfectly with the red wine vinaigrette and supercharges the entire recipe with added anti-inflammatory properties.  
 
Enjoy!
