When you add fresh corn to an otherwise straightforward gazpacho featuring tomatoes, cucumber, vinegar, and olive oil, you get a creamier, richer texture and well rounded flavor featuring the sweetness of the corn. Fresh corn really is the only option here, so enjoy this recipe when summer corn is at its peak. Choose yellow or bicolor corn for the deepest yellow color, but know that white corn will also yield a lovely butter-yellow soup. Serve right away at room temperature, or chill for an hour or more if you want to enjoy the soup cold.
