William Conrad's Gazpacho

Martha Price

By

I love gazpacho, and have already listed a couple of recipes here, but could not resist adding one more! I found this recipe in an old cookbook which featured some recipes from celebrities. William Conrad is perhaps best known for his leading role in the television show "Cannon", aired in the 1970's. Although I have not tried this recipe - yet - it sounds good!
