Gazpacho is a delicious, chilled, tomato-based vegetable soup. I make this soup year round because it always reminds me of Summer. My interpretation is slightly spicy (you can increase or decrease the seasoning) and filled with chunks of vegetables. Even though the recipe has quite a few ingredients, it’s very fast and easy to make. To quicken the chilling time, refrigerate the juice and vegetables ahead of time. Garnish the soup with croutons and chopped chives, if desired.
