During the summer months I always serve several different versions of gazpacho, the classic cold tomato soup. This one requires a lot of chopped vegetables, so it takes a bit longer to prepare. (See hint below.) It will keep for several days in the refrigerator and makes a great meal on those days when it is too hot to cook.
Prep Time: 1200 min
Cook Time: 20 min
1 Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl. Cover and chill for several hours before serving.
Hint: The ingredients may be prepared by using a food processor. This is a great time saver. This may also be prepared by pureeing half of the ingredients and leaving the remaining ingredients finely chopped.
Note: To peel tomatoes, use one of the new serrated peelers, or dip briefly in boiling water until the skins loosen, then just slip the skins off.
