Chilled Summer Vegetable Gazpacho
Chilled soups are wonderful when the weather is hot and you want to stay cool. Especially when they involve no cooking. Gazpachos are perfect for that. My Mom used to make one with just cucumbers and tomatoes with a little sea salt and it was so simple but so good. The one I am sharing with you today has a few more veggies than that to give it more nutrients but it is delicious. All you need to do is buzz it up in your blender, pour into a bowl and enjoy! It makes a wonderful starter for a summer dinner, or something delicious to dip your bread into.
