Garden Gazpacho is a perfect meal for warm weather. I decided to make this when the temperature reached 105 and I did not want to turn on my oven or stove to make dinner. It is an extremely refreshing soup that is served chilled.


2 cups Cucumber, diced
2 cups Bell pepper, diced
2 cups Tomato, diced
1/4 cup onion, diced
1/2 cup tomato juice
1/2 cup red-wine vinegar
1 cup water
2 dashes Tabasco
Cilantro, to taste


To create this meal, chop all of the vegetables and place them in a large bowl. Add the liquid ingredients to the vegetables and stir several times until combined. Take half of the mixture and process in a food processor. Return the processed mixture to the bowl and stir until combined. Chill the soup.
I added several sprigs of cilantro for a garnish. This chilled soup also tastes wonderful with a dollop of goat cheese.
